Chino man gets 3 years in prison for felony gun charge

A 25-year-old Chino Valley man who pointed a gun at three people outside a trailer in Prescott received a three-year prison sentence Monday.

Paul R. Koch pleaded guilty to misconduct as a felon who is prohibited to possess a firearm, according to Penny Cramer, a spokeswoman for the Yavapai County Attorney's Office.

At nearly midnight on Jan. 1, officers responded to a call about a man who pointed a gun at a woman, her husband and another man outside a trailer in the 500 block of Copper Basin Road, police said. The woman told police that Koch also hit the hood of her car and made references to the Aryan Brotherhood, a prison gang.

Superior Court Judge Thomas Lindberg also gave Koch 72 days credit for the time he served in the Camp Verde jail and dismissed the other charges against him.
