A Lebanon man who staged a nine-hour standoff with a SWAT team on Britney Drive last February has been sentenced to federal prison for illegally possessing multiple firearms.
On Monday, U.S. District Judge Beth Phillips sentenced Jesse D. Ivey, 40, of Lebanon, to eight years in federal prison without parole.
According to a press release from Tammy Dickenson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, Ivey pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of firearms on June 27, at which time he admitted that he was in possession of a Charter Arms .38-caliber revolver, a high Standard .22-caliber pistol, a Ruger .357-caliber revolver and a Savage .30-06 rifle.
The release says that law enforcement found the weapons in Ivey’s vehicle on Jan. 5, 2016, after Ivey evaded a traffic stop, led officers on a high-speed chase, crashed his vehicle in a wooded area and then fled the scene. According to the release, the firearms were loaded, and one of them had been reported stolen. The vehicle also contained tools that had been reported stolen.
Ivey was arrested on Feb. 10, 2016 after he spent approximately 9 hours barricaded in a Britney Drive duplex, causing local law enforcement to call for assistance from a Missouri State Highway Patrol SWAT Team.
