Treasurer’s Son Facing Felony Charge Following Alleged Incident

court

The adult son of Beaver County Treasurer Connie Javens has been charged with a felony following an alleged altercation at her house in Monaca.

Police say that Dan Javens, 52 of Monaca, got into a verbal altercation with his wife sometime around 8:40pm Thursday night. After she went into a bedroom of the home to get away from the man, he allegedly knocked it open in a fit of rage. The woman told police she feared for her life and pepper sprayed Javens in self defense.

Police allege that Dan Javens then retrieved his Smith & Wesson .38 caliber handgun and began searching the residence looking for his wife while yelling that he was going to kill her.

Officers say Dan Javens’ father, mother (Treasurer Connie Javens), and son were attempting to calm the man down when he fired a shot into a livingroom wall. The family told authorities they fled into another room fearing for their lives.

Dan Javens is facing felony charges of Aggravated Assault, a misdemeanor charge of Terroristic Threats, and 4 misdemeanor counts of Recklessly Endangering Another Person. Javens was released from the Beaver County Jail after Magisterial District Judge DiBenedetto of Aliquippa set a $50,000 unsecured bond in the case.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Javens on March 20th at 9:00am.

Thirty years of sweeping under the rug, and we have paid for it, but she still looks to toss rocks at other people while living in her PPG glass house. My nephew was a physical therapist at friendship ridge he lost his job along with others when county decided to her family million dollar contractpays for for her lifestyle. This will get swept under rug by her and lawyers or judges that need a favor.

Just saying Google the Javens family on internet. And start looking at beaver county Times article, they maybe one of the most notorious for terrible families through out the county, from arson in beaver falls, rape in New Brighton, Megan’s law violators,Dui,s, hit and runs, drug arrest, fighting with neighbors, assault, bad checks, theft, receiving stolen property you name it they done it

Not isolated incidents repeated over and over, some Get little slap and that’s it.

First off. Half you stupid idiots don’t know what your talking about. Everyone of you acts like your friends of the family by the information you give. But highly doubtful that even 10% of the shit you all say is true or relevant to the javens family in monaca.

Yup! Are you serious? The man has been arrested for firing a handgun inside an occupied domicile! This after being maced by family out of fear for their lives! What planet do you live on where all of these allegations are somehow not ” relevant” to the Javen’s family?

Go file for divorce because when he kills you after this no one will feel that bad about it.
