Older Horton Gets 2 to 10 Years In State Prison For His Part In Oil Spill

Andrew Horton Sentenced

Andrew Horton will spend the next two to 10 years in state prison for conspiring with his son to cause an oil spill in the Allegheny National Forest because he was upset with his former employer.

Horton pleaded guilty in April to charges that he dropped off his son, 22-year-old Christopher Horton, to vandalize Snyder Brothers oil storage tanks in August.

Christopher Horton opened valves spilling 46,000 gallons of oil onto the forest and into a stream, killing thousands of fish and other aquatic life as well as several small mammals.

Christopher Horton is serving three to six years in prison for state and federal convictions.

The Hortons have also been ordered to pay more than $600,000 in restitution.

How come the oil companies aren't being slapped in jail for screwing all of us?

Because they screw us legally, right along with the pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies....see it pays to have "friends" in high places.
