Corning Restaurant Owner Pleads Guilty

     CORNING (WENY) -- The owner of a popular Corning restaurant is in trouble with the law for not paying taxes.
     Fifty-four year old Pelham McClellan, who owns Market Street Brewing Company, pleaded guilty to violating New York State tax law. New York State police say McClellan failed to pay more than a $255,000 in state taxes between 2003 and 2009. He was initially charged with 2nd degree Grand Larceny, but pleaded down to a lesser charge.
     McClellan was given a one year conditional discharge, and paid the restitution in full.
