WASHINGTON (AP) — A man who planned a mass shooting at the Washington headquarters of a conservative Christian lobbying group should spend 11½ years in prison for the failed plot, not the 45 years government lawyers want, his defense attorney says.
A lawyer for Floyd Corkins II made the recommendation in a document filed in federal court in Washington on Tuesday.
Corkins’ lawyer says his client was mentally ill when he entered a building housing the Family Research Council armed with nearly 100 rounds of ammunition and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches and shot and wounded a security guard.
