Manilla pleads guilty to federal firearms violation
Quote:David Manilla, the Montgomery County attorney who shot and killed a Bucks County hunter in 2010, pleaded guilty Monday in federal court to possession of firearms by a convicted felon.

Manilla, 51, of Worcester, was found to be in possession of multiple firearms and ammunition when police investigated the shooting death of hunter Barry Groh. Manilla was prohibited from possessing any weapons because of his conviction for aggravated assault for the 1985 beating of another man.

U.S. District Court Judge Jan E. DuBois scheduled a sentencing hearing for June 27. Manilla faces a maximum statutory sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, three years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.

Manilla is serving a 10- to 25-year state prison term for involuntary manslaughter and other crimes in Groh’s death. He filed an allowance of appeal in that case with the state Supreme Court, the first hurdle to having the court hear his case.

The weapons charges stem from a bag of guns Manilla allegedly instructed a handyman to hide after he shot Groh, 52, in a wooded area of Richland on Nov. 29, 2010, opening day of Pennsylvania’s deer season.

All of his elite hunting buddies should be sentenced with him.
