The St. Paul man was convicted on federal firearms charges

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska)- A St. Paul man will be sentenced in May to a federal court conviction for felony possession of a firearm.

Robert Jaeger, 43, pleaded guilty to the possession charge Thursday in US District Court in Lincoln. In exchange for pleading guilty, federal prosecutors dropped the charge of possessing a silencer without a license.

Jaeger will be sentenced on May 17.

Hamilton County Sheriff’s Deputies and State Patrol arrested Jaeger last August in a field near the Aurora I-80 exit.

Court records indicate that Jaeger threatened to kill an ex-girlfriend who worked at a nearby truck stop.

Soldiers arrested Jaeger a few hours later and found numerous weapons in his pickup truck. The uncovered weapons were a Universal Firearms M1 .30 caliber rifle, a .223 caliber Ruger Mini-14 rifle, a .22-250 caliber Remington Model 700 rifle, and a .45 caliber Model 1911-A1 Springfield pistol.

Jaeger had previously been convicted of burglary in Clay County in 1999.

Felony possession of a firearm carries a maximum penalty of ten years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
