A Penn­syl­va­nia man shot by the Se­cret Ser­vice at a White House gate ear­lier this year af­ter he re­fused to drop a gun he was car­ry­ing has been sen­tenced to eight months con­fine­ment. Jesse Olivieri was shot on May 20. The 31-year-old from Ash­land, Pa., pleaded guilty in Septem­ber to a charge of “re­sist­ing or im­ped­ing cer­tain of­fi­cers or em­ploy­ees with a dan­ger­ous weapon.”

On Tues­day, Judge Royce C. Lam­berth sen­tenced Olivieri to a to­tal of eight months of con­fine­ment. Olivieri will get credit for the time he has been in cus­tody and serve the rest of his sen­tence in home de­ten­tion, in his case at a med­i­cal fa­cil­ity. He will serve three years of su­per­vised re­lease.

No one re­sponded im­me­di­ately to a tele­phone mes­sage left with his at­tor­ney Tues­day.
