Ed and Elaine Brown were convicted Thursday on all counts of plotting to kill federal agents during a nine-month standoff - Couple Gets Minimum 30 Years In Prison

The Browns holed up in their hilltop home in early 2007 to avoid arrest after being convicted of tax evasion. They amassed an arsenal of high-powered weapons and explosives, including booby-traps in woods surrounding the home.

Ed Brown testified the weapons were for self-defense, saying he believed the government planned to kill the couple.
