According to U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent in Charge Marcus Watson, a federal judge sentenced the father of a Huntsville elementary school shooting victim on Monday. Judge Karen O. Bowdre of the United States District Court gave Letroy Cole, JR , 41, a sentence of 26 months in prison and three years of supervised release. Letroy Cole Jr., 41, entered a plea of guilty in November to the federal offense of having a gun while being a felon in prison. Cole possessed a Kel Tec model P-32 .32-caliber semi-automatic pistol.
Second-grader Cole’s son discovered the concealed weapon in their home and brought it to class to show a friend. In a washroom at Blossomwood Elementary School on September 17, 2018, the second-grader accidentally shot himself while demonstrating it to a buddy.
