MIDLAND - A Pecos man has been sentenced to almost 14 years in prison for carjacking a Midland man.

26-year-old Jimmy James Montour was sentenced to 165 months in federal prison on Wednesday.

According to court documents, on December 27, 2007, Montour and a juvenile accomplice approached the victim in the driveway of his residence on South County Road in Midland. Montour threatened the man with a weapon and forced him to give Montour and the juvenile a ride to a remote location in Midland County.

During the ride, Montour and the juvenile put a knife to the man's neck and threatened to kill him if he did not comply with their instructions. Eventually, Montour and his accomplice ordered the victim out of the car and then drove off.

"Montour is a violent predator who is right where he needs to be, federal prison," United States Attorney Johnny Sutton, said.

Montour's juvenile accomplice is being prosecuted by the Midland County District Attorney's Office.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation West Texas Area Major Offenders Task Force and the Midland County Sheriff's Office.
