Michael Joseph Henry, 31, of Philadelphia, was sentenced Thursday to 20 to 66 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to illegally purchasing several guns for the man who murdered Plymouth Township Police Officer Brad Fox last year, according to an NBC10 story.
According to court documents, Henry pleaded guilty in March to seven counts of illegally purchasing firearms and nine counts of making false written statements in conjunction with the purchases; the purchases happened in April 2012, according to the documents.
Officer Bradley Fox was killed Sept. 13, 2012 after responding to a hit-and-run on Ridge Pike. He followed a silver SUV that went speeding past in the wrong lane of travel. After the driver exited the vehicle, Fox began a foot pursuit in an industrial area with K-9 partner Nick, rounded a corner along a train track, and was shot and killed. The man who shot Fox then killed himself.
In addition to being a police officer, Fox served two tours of duty in Iraq.
