Sublett sentenced to 140 years

The Oakland man who held police at bay for four days is sentenced in federal court on May 1, 2007.

Russell Sublett led police on a high-speed chase from T.J. Samson Hospital in Glasgow, Ky., to David Stewart's home on 31-W, north of Bowling Green, Ky., on September 29, 2004.

He exchanged sporadic gunfire with police for four days, before Bowling Green police officer Mike Delaney was able to talk him out of the house.

In February, Sublett was found guilty of five counts of attempted murder of law enforcement officials and one county of carjacking.

Today, Federal Judge Thomas B. Russell sentenced 43-year-old Sublett to a total of 140 years in the state penitentiary.
