United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Bushnell, Florida, man convicted of Witness Tampering was sentenced on January 13, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Seth Stone, age 25, was sentenced to time served (45 days), 3 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
         
Stone was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 15, 2013.  He pled guilty on November 18, 2013.
         
The conviction stems from an incident between June 1, 2012, and July 15, 2012, wherein Stone instructed a minor to destroy all electronic records of conversations that had occurred between the two of them, knowing an investigation was being conducted.
         
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.
