A federal judge has ordered a Lodge Grass man to spend two years in prison for threatening law enforcement officers over the telephone.
Senior U.S. District Judge Jack Shanstrom last week sentenced Randall Not Afraid, 42, to a term below the guideline range of 37 to 46 months. Not Afraid, he said, fired a shot from his gun and knew law enforcement officers were coming to his house.
Not Afraid pleaded guilty in August to threats by interstate communication for an incident last Jan. 13 in which officers were responding to a call that he had assaulted his common-law-wife.
When officers responded, Not Afraid called the Bureau of Indian Affairs dispatcher and threatened to shoot the officers if they came to his house, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Vince Carroll. No one was hurt.
Shanstrom continued Not Afraid's release for 30 days and ordered him to surrender to the U.S. Marshals Service.
