White Earth man gets prison for making threats

John Charles Goodman III, 24, of White Earth has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for making terroristic threats, a felony.

According to court records, on Nov. 2 at about 2:45 p.m. police were called to an altercation at the Albertson mobile home park in Frazee.

The vehicle involved in the disturbance was stopped in the trailer park, and Goodman was the driver. With him in the vehicle were his two children, one an infant and one a toddler, along with two women and man passed out in the passenger seat.

Witnesses said they saw Goodman arguing with a resident of the mobile home park, then get a rifle out of his vehicle and wave it around, telling the resident that "if he wanted it, he would get it."

A Winchester .308 with scope was found in the trunk, uncased and loaded.

Goodman appeared Friday before District Judge Joe Evans, who sentenced him to 27 months in prison, with credit for 68 days served in jail. He was fined $50 plus court fees, to be taken from his prison earnings.
