Mark Krause, originally charged in a case alleging his involvement with placement of a soda can bomb at a rural Arkansas polling place, was sentenced today to 24 months in prison and fined $5,000 for possession of an unregistered weapon. In a plea deal, a charge related to a destructive device was dropped.

Here's the news release.

Conner Eldridge, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, announced today that MARK KRAUSE, age 40, was sentenced in federal court before Chief U.S. District Judge Jimm Larry Hendren, in Harrison, Arkansas.

The defendant was sentenced to 24 months imprisonment, three years of supervised release and ordered to pay a $5,000.00 fine. KRAUSE pled guilty to Conspiracy to Possess Unregistered Firearms, in violation of 26 U.S.C. § 5861(d), on March 9, 2011. At the time of sentencing, the Government dismissed without prejudice the count charging Possession of a Destructive Device, in violation of 26 U.S.C. § 5861(d).

This case was investigated by the FBI and ATF. The case was prosecuted by First Assistant U.S. Attorney Wendy L. Johnson and A.U.S.A. Steven Snyder.
