Jakubowski Sentenced to 9 1/2 Years in State Prison

Joseph Jakubowski, the Janesville man who already had been convicted of federal gun theft charges, will spend an additional five years in prison following his sentencing today on state burglary charges.

Jakubowski became the subject of a 10-day nationwide manhunt in April 2017 after he stole 18 weapons from the Armegeddon Supplies gun shop, torched his own vehicle, wrote a 161-page anti-government manifesto that he mailed to President Donald Trump before going into hiding.

He was found April 14, 2017 on a Vernon County farm camping under a tarp, with several guns, a samurai sword, a helmet and flammable substances. He was taken into custody without incident. 

Judge James Daley sentenced Jakubowski on Feb. 28, 2018 to five years in prison, consecutive to his federal sentence, along with five years of extended supervision for the burglary charge.

Two lesser charges will run concurrent to his federal sentence.

On the count of theft, he was sentenced to three years confinement and three years supervision, to be served concurrently.

On a count of possession of burglarious tools, Jakubowski was sentenced to 1-1/2 years in confinement with tow years supervision, to be served concurrently.

A federal jury in Madison found Jakubowski guilty on Sept. 26, 2018 and was sentenced Dec. 20, 2017 to 14 years in prison.
