MEDFORD, Ore. — The man convicted in federal court of setting a bomb at the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office last November will also spend time behind bars for a series of burglaries committed before the bombing.

Alan McVay pleaded guilty in Jackson County Court Thursday to four counts of burglary and a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Those burglaries were committed at several homes in 2011 and 2012.

He was sentenced to three years in prison, which will be served at the same time as the 15 years he is serving for the bombing at the D.A. office. He is also ordered to pay more than $100,000 in restitution to the burglary victims.

“The likelihood of restitution is probably pretty slim given the federal sentence and state sentences, but one never knows,” said Donald Denman, who represents the estate of one of the burglary victims. “We could always hope that some restitution might be made.”

In court, McVay apologized to the burglary victims.
