BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A former Baton Rouge resident has been sentenced to 32 years for forcing his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint to drive her empty school bus from her house to his.

U.S. Attorney Walt Green says 38-year-old Jock Jones got 15 years for carjacking, 10 years for possessing a firearm after being convicted of a felony, and seven for using a firearm in a violent crime.

He says in a news release that U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick sentenced Jones on Thursday.

Jones pleaded guilty in February to the firearm possession charge, and Dick convicted him later that month on the other two counts.

Green says evidence showed that, while forcing the driver onto her bus, Jones pointed his gun at her two children and threatened to kill them if they called police.
