Gary May is sentenced to 21 months behind bars with three years probation and fined $20,000 in federal court today. May is cooperating with the ongoing criminal investigation of the 2010 explosion that killed 29 miners at the former Massey Energy Operation. May pleaded guilty in March. He was accused of defrauding the government through his actions at the time, including disabling a methane gas monitor and falsifying records. Many family members of the fallen miners felt that the sentence was not harsh enough.
