RENO, Nev. (AP) - The 21-year-old son of a judge in northern
Nevada has been sentenced to up to four years in prison for
stealing his father's guns to sell for drug money.
Jeffrey Michael Lister is the son of Fallon Municipal Court
Judge Michael Lister. He earlier was sentenced to a year in jail
for having sex with an intoxicated 15-year-old girl at a teen party
three years ago hosted by a former softball coach at Churchill
County High School.
Judge Lister reported his firearms were stolen this summer and
told authorities he thought his son was a suspect.
Churchill District Judge William Rogers rejected the younger Lister's plea for drug rehab instead of prison. Rogers called Lister an addict and thief who's used up all his chances.
