Huron Man Gets Prison For Explosive Charges

July 31, 2012, 1:31 PM

HURON, SD -

A Huron man charged in a standoff with police that authorities say involved an explosive device has been sentenced to prison.

Judge Jon Erickson sentenced 41-year-old Christopher Santfleben to four years in the state penitentiary for possessing a destructive device and possessing an explosive device with the intent to cause harm. He will get credit for the one day he spent in the Beadle County Jail before posting $10,000 bond.

Santfleben was arrested in April after a two-hour standoff with police. Authorities say they found gasoline mixed with another ingredient to make a jelly-type substance comparable to napalm.

Santfleben's lawyer, Kent Shelton, told Judge Jon Erickson that alcohol abuse is his client's only problem and that Santfleben has nearly completed an alcohol abuse program.
