Indiana psychologist gets 8-year prison sentence for illegally possessing … – The Republic

ANDERSON, Indiana — A central Indiana psychologist convicted of illegally possessing firearms and ammunition has been sentenced to more than eight years in federal prison.

A federal judge in Indianapolis sentenced 66-year-old Bruce Jones of Anderson on Friday to 100 months and ordered him to forfeit 47 firearms and ammunition and pay a $12,000 fine.

Jones was barred from possessing firearms or ammunition under 1984 convictions for insurance fraud and selling drugs.

U.S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett tells The Herald Bulletin ( ) firearms were found in Jones’ possession when a search warrant was served on his two Madison County properties and his Montana ranch. Four dozen firearms and 14,000 rounds of ammunition were found at Jones’ Montana property.

Hogsett says the investigation found Jones encouraged his patients to buy weapons for him.
