A Leavenworth man who has more than 30 prior convictions has been sentenced to a total of four years in prison for aggravated assault and interference with law enforcement.

A Leavenworth man who has more than 30 prior convictions has been sentenced to a total of four years in prison for aggravated assault and interference with law enforcement.

Orville W. Sieg, 48, Leavenworth, was sentenced in two cases Friday in Leavenworth County District Court.

In one of the cases, Sieg was sentenced to 16 months in prison for a felony charge of interference with a law enforcement officer and misdemeanor counts of battery on a law enforcement officer, driving with a suspended license, criminal damage to property and reckless driving. He was convicted of these charges in June.

The charges stem from a July 29, 2017, incident in Leavenworth. Sieg reportedly was in a vehicle at a convenience store at 300 N. Fourth St. when a police officer attempted to take him into custody for an arrest warrant for a drug charge.

Sieg reportedly resisted arrest and placed the car in drive while the officer was partially inside of the vehicle. The officer was dragged as the car exited onto Miami Street. Sieg reportedly struck the officer, attempting to dislodge him from the vehicle.

The officer was thrown from the vehicle onto Miami Street.

In the other case, Sieg was sentenced to 32 months in prison for a charge of aggravated assault. He also was convicted of this charge in June.

This charge stems from an April 4, 2017, incident in Leavenworth. A bond recovery agent reportedly 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.

District Judge Michael Gibbens ordered the sentences in the two cases to run consecutive to each other.

The sentences for these two cases also will run consecutive to another prison sentence that Sieg is already serving for drug charges. In March, Sieg was convicted of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was sentenced in this case to more than three years in prison.

Assistant County Attorney Shawn Boyd said in court Friday that Sieg has shown no remorse for his crimes and has not taken responsibility.

Boyd said Sieg had more than 30 previous convictions. The prosecutor said Sieg’s criminal history includes violent crimes.

“He is a danger to the community,” Boyd said of the defendant.

Sieg asked the judge to reconsider a motion for a new trial in one of his cases.

Sieg requested to have his sentences run concurrent. Sieg said he wants to get his son back when he is released from prison.

Sieg said he plans to look into group therapy programs while in prison.

Following Friday’s sentencing, County Attorney Todd Thompson released the following statement: “We are extremely fortunate no one got more seriously hurt. Both these cases were due to the simple fact that a person did not want to take responsibility for their actions, and instead tried to run. Now he has even more prison time to serve.”
