A Ku Klux Klan leader learned his punishment Wednesday for stealing guns and plotting to kill the Johnston County sheriff.

A federal judge sentenced William Barefoot Jr. to 15 years in prison.

Barefoot was convicted last September of a scheme to sell stolen weapons.

Prosecutors also said Barefoot blamed Sheriff Steve Bizzell for the failure of a nightclub he owned.

He also blamed Bizzell for not allowing the Klan to march in Benson's annual Mule Days parade.
