Homemade Bomb Leads to Federal Prison for Corrigan Man, LIVINGSTON, December 19, 2019 - On December 11, 2019 a federal judge sentenced Joel Rueben Lambright Jr. of Corrigan to 24 months confinement in the Bureau of Prisons after Lambright pled guilty to possessing a homemade bomb. The federal case, which was prosecuted by Tommy L. Coleman of Livingston, serving as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney, began on April 4, 2018, when a federal grand jury returned an indictment, charging Lambright with Possession of an Unregistered Destructive Device. According to authorities, on August 14, 2017, Corrigan police officers executed a search warrant on Lambright’s residence in Corrigan where they suspected there to be narcotics activity. However, their search of the residence revealed a plastic container filled with what appeared to be gunpowder and a fuse that extended from its metal top. Officers subsequently contacted the ATF who responded to the scene, disassembled the device and forwarded it to the ATF Forensic Science Laboratory for analysis. The analysis of the device by the lab indicated that the device was indeed a Destructive Device prohibited by the United States Code and commonly referred to as a bomb. Records from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas indicate that Lambright was previously convicted of Deprivation of Rights and sentenced to 97 months in a federal prison. State court records show that Lambright was also convicted of Manslaughter, Interference with Public Duties and Possession of a Controlled Substance. In addition to the 24 months, upon his release, Lambright will be required to serve 1 year of supervised release.
