KNOX COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Lexington man facing over two dozen charges from a 2017 standoff has been sentenced to seven years in prison in Knox County.

The Times Tribune reports 52-year-old David Wilson was sentenced Friday.

As part of Wilson’s agreement, he will serve five years for third-degree burglary and two years for fleeing or evading police.

He will also be required to pay $20,000 in restitution.

Back in January 2017, a woman called 911 claiming a man with a gun was harassing her.

Officers say when they arrived,Wilson ran into some nearby woods and into a home under construction. He was arrested following an 11 hour standoff.
