Injured postal worker convinces judge to give shooter lighter sentence

SAN ANTONIO – A man accused of shooting a postal worker is sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.

It’s surprising Bradley A’Hearn didn’t get more prison time because a federal judge was ready to throw the book at him, but relented and gave a lighter sentence after hearing from the injured postal worker.

“My hope is he will use the time he’s been given to make a better life for himself and the people around him,” Marie Sebastian said in her first and only on-camera statement about the day last year she was shot on the job.
