An Austin man facing a felony terroristic threats charge in Mower County District Court stemming from an incident that took place on January 25th 2021 has been sentenced to jail time and supervised probation.

26-year old Shane Micheal Kranz was sentenced Thursday to 55 days in jail and three years of supervised probation for a felony charge of terroristic threats.  Kranz was granted a stay of imposition in the case where the defendant pleads guilty to a felony-level offense.  If he or she successfully completes their probation, the conviction will be deemed a misdemeanor.  Kranz was given credit for 55 days already served, and he was convicted on the charge on January 13th after pleading guilty the same day.

A felony charge of 2nd degree assault with a dangerous weapon and gross misdemeanor charges of domestic assault and interfering with an emergency call in the case were dismissed with Kranz’s guilty plea
