A man from Sullivan County, New Hampshire will have to remain behind bars for 17 more years because of a 2007 armed standoff at his home with U.S. Marshals that lasted for months.

Edward Brown, 78, of Plainfield was originally sentenced to 37 years but asked a judge to be re-sentenced to time served. The standoff, in protest of a tax evasion conviction, led to the discovery of explosives and booby traps on Brown’s property.

Brown’s wife, Elaine Brown, was originally sentenced to 35 years in prison but was re-sentenced in January to time served. She’s now free and is seeking a divorce.
