Jacobs sentenced to 14 years for robbery, meth

Barton County Attorney Amy Mellor announced today that Lee Brett Jacobs appeared in Barton County District Court on Friday for sentencing on two felony cases. In May, Jacobs was convicted on a charge of robbery in one case, and unlawful possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) in a second case.
At sentencing, Jacobs was ordered to serve 130 months for the robbery case, followed by 40 months for the drug case, for a total of 170 months (14 years and two months) in prison.
Mellor said the robbery occurred on Sept. 16, 2016, in the 1400 block of 11th St. in Great Bend. A woman who went to that address with another man was robbed of cash and other property. The case was investigated by the Great Bend Police Department.
The second case stemmed from Feb. 3, when Jacobs was arrested for possession of meth. The Barton County Sheriff’s Office investigated.
Mellor prosecuted both cases for the Barton County Attorney’s Office.
At sentencing, Jacobs was also advised that he could not possess firearms as a result of his convictions.
