Man Sentenced for Threatening Facility

1-31 scott gorman picEUGENE, Ore. — A man who made threats toward an adult care facility last year will serve almost three and a half years in jail.

Scott Gorman, 47, pleaded guilty to felon in possession of a firearm Friday afternoon in federal court.

Prosecutors say when the convicted felon was arrested last January, police found firearms in his home, including an AR-15 assault rifle.

Friday, Gorman told the court he wasn’t happy with how the facility was treating his wife.

“His timing was atrocious. This happened right at the time that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting had taken place, with the same type of weapon, with the same type high-capacity magazines and I think that had his timing been somewhat different this probably would’ve resolved in state court,” said John Kolego, Gorman’s attorney.

Friday’s sentencing includes both charges, felon in possession of a firearm and the threats against the facility.

The state and federal sentences will be served at the same time. Gorman will get credit for time served.
