Former Town and Country Resident Gets 20 Years For Clayton Garage Bombing
Former Town and Country resident Milton "Skip" Ohlsen was sentenced to 20 years in prison Wednesday for the 2008 Clayton garage bombing that injured an attorney.
Former Town and Country resident Milton "Skip" Ohlsen, III, 41, was sentenced to 20 years in prison Wednesday, plus three years supervised release, for the 2008 bombing in a Clayton parking garage, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced Wednesday.
As previously reported by Town and Country - Manchester Patch, Milton "Skip" Ohlsen III, was already serving prison time for crimes committed in Town and Country when he was charged with five counts in connection to the bombing.
In September, 2012, Ohlsen pleaded guilty to four counts involving the bombing that injured the attorney who was not the intended target. Investigators believe Ohlsen was trying to target his ex-wife's attorney instead.
The U.S Attorney's Office released the following details about the case in a news release Wednesday.
With his plea last September, Ohlsen admitted that on October 15, 2008, he transported a bomb to the parking garage at 190 Carondelet with the intent that the bomb would cause death or serious bodily injury to the intended victim. He concealed the explosive device in a gift basket and placed the basket next to an Acura TL that he incorrectly believed belonged to the intended victim. On October 16, 2008, the bomb exploded and caused permanent bodily injury to John Gillis, who had moved the basket because it was blocking access to the driver's door of his Acura TL.
Ohlsen, 41, pled guilty to one felony count each of transportation of explosive with intent to injure; malicious use of an explosive devise; being a previously convicted felon in possession of an explosive; and possession of an unregistered destructive device, and appeared today for sentencing before United States District Judge E. Richard Webber.
