LAS VEGAS (AP) - An adult son of southern Nevada rancher and states’ rights advocate Cliven Bundy has been dropped from a court diversion program and is facing prison time for violating probation.

Cliven Lance Bundy’s appointed deputy public defender, Jeffrey Rue, didn’t immediately respond Thursday to messages about Clark County District Court Senior Judge Joseph Bonaventure’s order terminating Bundy’s drug court privilege.

The 35-year-old Bundy remains jailed pending sentencing Feb. 4.

Clark County District Court Judge Carolyn Ellsworth could impose a two-to-eight year sentence stemming from Bundy’s guilty plea in February 2013 to felony burglary and weapon theft charges.

Bundy’s father, Cliven Bundy, became a symbol for resisting authority after armed supporters faced off with armed federal agents last April to end a Bureau of Land Management roundup of Bundy cattle.
