Judge sentences Columbia man guilty in Brian Daniels' murder
COLUMBIA - The man who pleaded guilty to providing a false alibi in the murder of Brian Daniels was sentenced late Monday.
Glenn Anderson was sentenced to five years probation for his role in the murder-for-hire case. Anderson could face jail time only if he violates his probation.
Anderson originally told police that James Thompson, convicted of first-degree murder, was at his house at 8 p.m. on the night of the murder of Daniels.
Anderson later admitted to initially lying to police and later told investigators Thompson had not been at his house when he went to bed at 11 p.m. that night.
The maximum sentence available for Anderson who was charged with hindering a prosecution was four years in prison.
