Area man sentenced for threats
ELKINS – A Mabie man, who pleaded guilty to one count of threats of terroristic acts in February, was one of five individuals sentenced in Randolph County Circuit Court.
Cody Trevor Harris, 28, of Mabie was sentenced to one to three years in a state penitentiary Friday after pleading guilty to the terroristic threats charge.
Harris told Randolph County Circuit Court Judge Jaymie Godwin Wilfong Friday the situation involved a police officer was telling him about the time he would face in prison for unrelated charges and he “got angry.”
Senior Trooper C.S. Johnston, the officer present at the time, wrote in the criminal complaint that Harris told him, “If I get out, I’ll just shoot at police, and I know y’all are just doing your job, but I know you all wear vests so I’ll shoot at your heads and if you have to shoot back, that’s fine too.”
“I’m sorry for what I said,” Harris told Wilfong Friday. “I never meant to do it.”
Harris’ attorney, James Hawkins, said the issue was one of “words not actions” and that Harris responded inappropriately but had no intention to act.
