Man with improvised explosive device sentenced to weekends behind bars

A Lincoln man has been sentenced to probation and weekends in prison for being felon in possession of a gun and for having an improvised explosive device.

47-year-old Shawn Huntington of Beatrice was sentenced to six years of probation, 15 consecutive weekends behind bars, and 150 hours of community service. 

Huntington was arrested on November 11, 2017 for using a gun to hunt Gage County even though he was prohibited from having a gun. 

While he was out on bond on that charge, officers investigating another crime served a search warrant at Huntington’s home and found an IED in his vehicle. Police say the IED was surrounded with nails.

Huntington earlier pleaded guilty to the two counts.
