ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — A federal judge has approved a plea deal that will send a man to prison for 10 years and six months for ransacking cabins across a wide swath of Utah.
Troy James Knapp was in a St. George courtroom Monday for the sentencing on federal weapons charges.
U.S. Assistant Attorney Matthew Bell said the 46-year-old Knapp has been cooperating with authorities and has helped them find 16 weapons he had stored away.
Knapp will next go before a state judge where he's scheduled to take plea deals from seven Utah counties where he is charged with burglary-related crimes.
Knapp, known by many as the "Mountain Man," was captured in April 2013. Authorities say he began a string of cabin burglaries in 2007.
