Email

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Minnesota activist's father has pleaded guilty in Iowa to bumping a federal prosecutor in anger after his son was sent to prison for animal enterprise terrorism.

Timothy DeMuth of Minneapolis pleaded guilty Thursday to obstructing Assistant U.S. Attorney Clifford Cronk after his son's 2011 sentencing.

A plea agreement says DeMuth was upset a judge ordered his son, Scott, taken to prison rather than letting him surrender later.
