Brent Pappas is spending the next year in prison for waiving a gun at his son–in–law and police.

Brent Pappas plead guilty to one count of felony menacing. He was sentenced today to one year behind bars and at least two years of parole.

Pappas's defense attorney asked for a lighter sentence without jail time for Pappas because of existing medical conditions. Pappas suffers from M–S and chronic sinus infections.

Pappas told the judge he was not in a sound state of mind during the standoff because of all the medication he was taking.

A one year prison term is the minimum sentence for felony menacing.
