Straw Purchaser in Fox Shooting Pleads Guilty
Michael Joseph Henry, of Philadelphia, faces 42 to 84 years in jail.
The man charged with purchasing the gun used to kill Plymouth Township Police Officer Bradley Fox has pleaded guilty to multiple counts of sale or purchase of firearms, and other charges, according to the Delaware County Times.
Michael Joseph Henry, 31, of Philadelphia, allegedly made straw purchases of seven pistols and two riffles for Andrew Charles Thomas. Thomas was not legally allowed to possess firearms, as he was on probation for a 2005 forgery arrest in Upper Merion Township.
Thomas used one of the handguns to kill Fox and then himself on Sept. 13.
In an interview the day after Fox’s death, Henry allegedly said that Thomas paid Henry $500 in addition to the purchase price for each weapon that was sold to him over a four-month period in 2012.
Henry, currently being held at the county jail in lieu of $1 million cash bail, faces a maximum sentence of 42 to 84 years in prison.
