Man sentenced for vandalizing prosecutor's home

Posted: Updated:

WEST PLAINS, MO (AP) - A south-central Missouri man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for vandalizing the home of a county prosecutor and briefly stealing two vehicles.

The West Plains Daily Quill reports (http://bit.ly/1onLsTP ) 26-year-old David Metty, of Mountain Grove, was sentenced immediately after pleading guilty this week to seven felony charges and five misdemeanors in the March 2013 incident.

Metty admitted breaking into the home of Wright County prosecutor Jason MacPherson, which was left with several broken windows and broken doors.

He also stole two vehicles from the home and drove through fences, fields and private property until one of the vehicles hit a stump and stopped. Mountain Grove police arrested him amid what they described as erratic behavior.

Court records show MacPherson had prosecuted Metty and several members of his family.
