Sentencing Date Set for McNulty

A sentencing date of July 23rd has been set for a 41 year old Sturgeon Bay man who was arrested last August after he fired several shots at police officers & was involved in a standoff at his west side city home. Christopher McNulty had originally been charged with attempted first degree intentional homicide, but entered no contest pleas to second degree recklessly endangering safety, failing to comply with an officer & operating a firearm while intoxicated. Charges of reckless endangerment & criminal damage to property were dropped, but read into the record for the purposes of sentencing. McNulty, who now lives in Brown County, remains free on $25,000 bond. His bail provisions include absolute sobriety, a ban on possessing firearms or weapons of any kind & a residency requirement. On August 1st, officers were sent to his home on a welfare check, but were sent scrambling when shots were fired from a garage area. After several hours went by, a SWAT team stormed the home & McNulty was arrested without incident. Last October, he entered no contest pleas to the charges by reason of mental defect. Judge Peter Diltz will hand down McNulty’s sentence in July.
