WEST PLAINS, Mo. (AP) - David Metty, 26, Mtn. Grove, has been sentenced to up to seven years in state prison in a case in which it was charged he committed multiple crimes in the March 29, 2013, break-in at the home of Wright County Prosecuting Attorney Jason MacPherson.

MacPherson was not at home at the time.

Court papers do not say why Metty acted as he did, but do show MacPherson had prosecuted Metty and several members of Metty’s family.

The case was moved on a change of venue from Wright County to Howell County and sentencing by Howell County Associate Circuit Court Judge Don Henry, West Plains, was Tuesday in circuit court.


Court records show Metty pleaded guilty to 12 charges that include four counts of tampering, five counts of property damage, resisting arrest, driving while license revoked, and careless and imprudent driving.

Because the sentences will run concurrently he will serve no more than the seven years, court records show.

Wright County court records in 2013 showed it was charged Metty stole two vehicles from the MacPherson home and drove through fences, fields and private property until he finally was stopped when one of the vehicles hit a stump. Mtn. Grove police officers ran him down and arrested him following what was described as his erratic behavior.

Damage to the home included a screen porch, a door kicked in and several broken windows.
