Republic Man Receives 5 Years Probation After Forcing Housekeepers to Strip

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A Republic man was sentenced to five years probation after pleading guilty to accusations he had ordered two housekeepers to take their clothes off at gunpoint.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A Republic man was sentenced to five years probation after pleading guilty to accusations he had ordered two housekeepers to take their clothes off at gunpoint.

Jay Jett, 57, a felon with a prior offense, received a suspended execution of sentence to five years in the Missouri Department of Correction for unlawful possession of a firearm. His suspended sentence means instead of spending five years in prison, Jett was placed immediately on probation for five years.

Because Jett received a suspended execution of sentence, as opposed to a suspended imposition of sentence, the information about the firearms violation will show up on his record.

The more serious counts in the case involving the women forced to strip inside of his home were dropped due to lack of cooperation by the victims in the case, according to Chief Assistant Greene County Prosecuting Attorney Todd Myers.

According to a probable cause statement filed in the case, Jett got a handgun and started yelling at the women when they refused to disrobe, but the women were able to get away when a Missouri Gas Energy employee showed up to fix the gas meter at the house.

The amount of time he will actually spend on probation is impacted by his behavior while on probation. If Jett violates the terms of his probation, he may serve time in the Department of Corrections.
