HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Dauphin County man will serve up to 13 years in prison for asking a group of strangers to kill his former boss.
David L. Albright Jr., 42, was sentenced this week to five-and-a-half to 11 years for solicitation to commit aggravated assault followed by a consecutive term of 1-2 years for terroristic threats, according to court records and the Dauphin County district attorney’s office.
He was convicted on both counts following a trial in August.
Prosecutors said in June 2014, Albright went to his former manager’s home and verbally threatened him. When the manager called police, Albright went to a Highspire apartment complex, approached a group of people while holding a large butcher knife, and asked if they would kill his boss.
The jury acquitted him of ethnic intimidation and simple assault.
