MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Jackson County is planning a new office building in Medford for the district attorney’s office that is designed to be less vulnerable to the kind of homemade bomb attack that blew out a window in 2013.

The Mail Tribune (http://bit.ly/1ClMlUG ) reports the $6.2 million project would be built to new earthquake standards, and have extra security features, such as bollards to prevent vehicles from crashing into it, and outside surveillance cameras.

Alan LeRoy McVay was sentenced to 15 years in prison and ordered to pay $15,000 restitution for tossing a propane tank rigged to explode through a front window of the district attorney’s office. Authorities said he was trying to destroy records in another criminal case against him.

Construction could begin this summer if plans are approved by county commissioners.
