Hostettler Gets Suspended Sentence

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A congressman who brought a loaded gun into Louisville International Airport received a 60-day jail sentence, but will not have to serve it unless he has other criminal troubles during the next two years.

Under terms of his plea agreement, Rep. John Hostettler, a Republican of Indiana, also has surrendered his Glock 9 mm semiautomatic handgun, which screeners found April 20 as he was heading for a US Airways flight to Washington.

At the time, Hostettler, who had a permit for the gun, said he had forgotten he had placed the gun in the briefcase.

Hostettler, who represents the 8th District in southwestern Indiana, did not attend Monday's sentencing hearing in Jefferson District Court in Louisville. He had reached the plea agreement earlier this month.

David Schuler, Hostettler's attorney, said his client was "pleased to put this behind him and focus on other things."

Under terms of his plea agreement, Hostettler, 43, also cannot carry a gun in Kentucky or buy a gun anywhere except in Indiana and the District of Columbia for the next two years.
