AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Billy Glenn Ivy Jr. was sentenced this morning to 41 months in prison for federal weapons charges.

Ivy will also also pay a $25,000 fine.

He faced up to 10 years in prison for the charges of possessing unregistered firearms silencers.

According to court documents, members of several law enforcement agencies found the silencers attached to a pistol and two rifles in a safe at his home on a ranch near Adrian in March.

Ivy is currently facing charges for a murder-for-hire plot, as well as paying people to set a house on fire.

Kimberly Dison and Tyler Geisdorf were arrested for participating in the capital murder plot that investigators say was hatched by Ivy.

In September, a man who was killed in a SWAT standoff was linked to the murder-for-hire plot as well. In this incident, Ivy was arrested for trying to hire an undercover police officer to kill several people.

During the investigation, it was learned that Ivy had met 45-year-old Billy Elmore while both were detained in the Randall County Jail.

After Ivy posted bond and was temporarily released from jail, he continued to contact Elmore, arranging several meetings with him the week before he was arrested.

Elmore was then shot in a SWAT standoff, and the officers have since returned to duty and will not face any charges.
