FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A man who had just completed a 25-year prison sentence for shooting a North Dakota judge is back in jail.

Reuben Larson was convicted of shooting Judge Lawrence Jahnke in a Grand Forks courtroom in 1992. Larson, who had been on the Grand Forks City Council from 1978-82, was in court because he had failed to make his child support payments.

KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/2mRWCsa ) reports that Larson finished his sentence Thursday. But Assistant U.S. Attorney Rick Volk says Larson “refused to comply with the terms of his supervised release” on separate federal firearms charges.

Larson is in the Burleigh county jail in Bismarck. He could be sent to prison for up to two more years.

Jahnke was seriously injured in the shooting, but eventually made a full recovery.
