LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The first of four young men charged over a rock-throwing episode on a Pennsylvania interstate that caused severe brain trauma to an Ohio teacher has been granted parole.

The Daily Item of Sunbury ( reports Keefer McGee was granted parole Wednesday by a Union County judge after serving 11 1/2 months in jail.

Sharon Budd underwent numerous surgeries for her injuries from the July 2014 attack. She remains impaired.

Her husband, Randy Budd, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Uniontown, Ohio, home earlier this month.

Judge Michael Sholley said 19-year-old McGee met the terms of his sentencing. McGee had pleaded guilty to aggravated assault. The judge said McGee understands the hurt that comes from Randy Budd's death, but said they weren't in court to consider that.
