West Fargo man gets 18 months in prison for threatening to kill federal judge

Robert Phillip Ivers, 65, was convicted by a federal jury last September and sentenced Friday, March 1, in U.S. District Court in St. Paul.

In the case, U.S. District Judge Wilhelmina Wright held a bench trial on a civil lawsuit in January 2017 brought by Ivers and ruled against him. He was trying to recoup proceeds from his policy with a life insurance company.
