ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A McAdoo, Pa., man convicted of harassing Sarah Palin’s Alaska lawyers has been sentenced to two years in prison for a probation violation.


Shawn Christy, 21, received credit for time already served.


His sentence Wednesday also included one year supervised release on a guilty plea of running from federal authorities in Pennsylvania. Christy was arrested in November for leaving a community re-entry facility before completing his six-month term there.


Assistant U.S. Attorney Retta-Rae Randall in Anchorage says Christy has almost a year left to serve.


Christy was sentenced last year to five years’ probation after he and his father pleaded guilty to making harassing phone calls to Palin’s attorneys. .


The Christys were accused of threatening the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate and her attorneys.
