TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Broken Arrow man has been sentenced to two years of probation after pleading guilty to allegations that he interfered with federal agents who served a search warrant at a Tulsa cancer treatment center.
U.S. Magistrate Frank McCarthy on Tuesday ordered Michael Kevin McDonnough to serve the first eight months of probation under home detention.
The Tulsa World reports (http://bit.ly/1bUy1uo ) that the 50-year-old McDonnough pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge on July 12. He acknowledged in his plea agreement that on April 23 he "had physical contact" with a U.S. Food and Drug Administration agent who was trying to prevent him from removing his laptop computer from the Camelot Cancer Center.
Camelot had advertised natural and alternative cancer treatments that the FDA says have not been shown to be effective.
