A former Navy recruiter at the Arnot mall is going to prison for his role in a murder-for-hire plot.

30-year-old Brandon McPherson will serve five to fifteen years in State Prison, sentenced this morning for conspiracy.

New York State Police at Bath arrested and charged McPherson in December of 2016 and charged him with felony conspiracy and murder after they say he was involved in an alleged murder plot. 

At the time of his arrest, McPherson was an active duty serviceman in the U.S. Navy.
