A Leavenworth man has been convicted of assaulting a bondsman who was trying to take the defendant into custody, according to a prosecution official.

Jurors found Orville W. Sieg, 47, guilty Tuesday of one count of aggravated assault, according to a news release from County Attorney Todd Thompson.

The verdict came at the end of a trial that began Monday in Leavenworth County District Court.

The charge stemmed from an April 4, 2017, incident in Leavenworth. A bond recovery agent spotted Sieg, who had previously failed to appear in court. A warrant had been issued for Sieg’s arrest.

Sieg, who was in a vehicle, reportedly pointed a handgun at the bondsman. Sieg then reportedly fled the scene, driving down a grass embankment.

A hearing for post-trial motions is scheduled for July 25. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 22.

Sieg recently was found guilty in two other cases in Leavenworth County District Court.

In March, he was convicted of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was sentenced in this case to more than three years in prison.

Last month, Sieg was convicted of battery on a law enforcement officer, interference with a law enforcement officer, driving with a suspended license, criminal damage to property and reckless driving. Sentencing in this case is scheduled for July 6.
