UNIONTOWN, Pa. – An alleged military impersonator who was wearing the wrong uniform when he tried to enter a southwestern Pennsylvania school for a speech about Veterans’ Day will likely receive probation and mental health treatment under a plea bargain.

A Fayette County prosecutor discussed the deal after 23-year-old Jonathan Campbell, of Uniontown, waived his right to a preliminary hearing Monday.

State police say Campbell showed up unannounced on Nov. 17 — six days after Veterans’ Day — at Laurel Highlands Middle School near Uniontown.

Police say Campbell claimed to be an Army veteran but was wearing an Air Force uniform and claimed to be there to speak with students about Veterans’ Day.

School officials denied Campbell entry and called police.

Campbell declined comment after Monday’s court appearance. His public defender didn’t immediately return a call.
