A British man has been sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison over his attempt to grab a gun in an alleged bid to kill Donald Trump.

Axar.az reports, Michael Sandford, 20, pleaded guilty in September to being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm and disrupting an official function. He was accused of grabbing a policeman's gun at a rally in Las Vegas in order to shoot at the candidate.

His mother says "he is remorseful over what he did". Sandford, from Dorking in Surrey, had faced up to 10 years in prison over the alleged assassination plot. The court heard that he could be eligible for release in four months' time, at which point he will be deported to the UK.

The defence team said their client is autistic and suffers seizures and obsession-compulsion anxiety.
