After family members and colleagues testified about their loss, the man who bought the gun used to kill Plymouth Township Police Officer Bradley Fox was sentenced Thursday in Montgomery County Court.
Judge Joseph A. Smythe ordered Michael J. Henry, 31, of Philadelphia, to serve 20 to 66 years in prison for selling a gun to Andrew C. Thomas.
Thomas, an ex-convict, could not legally purchase a gun. So he paid Henry to buy him nine firearms, including a 9mm Beretta.
In September, Thomas, 44, used that Beretta to kill Fox after the 34-year-old K-9 officer pursued him on foot into a hilly area near the Schuylkill River Trail. Thomas then turned the gun on himself and committed suicide.
