Ada man sentenced to federal prison after threatening DA

ADA, OK - An Ada man accused of threatening a Pontotoc County Assistant District Attorney has been sentenced to forty-one months in federal prison.

Authorities said 33-year-old David Paul McKnight pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

McKnight's sentence will be followed by thirty-six months of supervised release.

Last September, McKnight was arrested by Pontotoc County authorities after he wrote a letter to a friend in jail that outlined a plot to murder an assistant district attorney.

During a search warrant authorities found multiple guns and knives in McKnight's home.

McKnight is not eligible for parole.

      What gun laws? You must be one of those scared morons who believe anything the NRA tells you. The only new gun laws we have seen in the last few years have been pro-gun.
