Austin man sentenced to supervised probation on felony terroristic threats charges in Mower County District Court

An Austin man who threatened to kill family members during an incident in Austin in January has been sentenced to supervised probation in Mower County District Court.  

25-year-old Griffin Amson was sentenced Friday to five years of supervised probation for a felony charge of terroristic threats.  A prison sentence of a year and a day was stayed for five years if Amson complies with the terms of his probation, and he was also sentenced Friday to five years of supervised probation for a second felony charge of terroristic threats.  A 15-month prison sentence was stayed for five years if Amson complies with the terms of his probation, and Judge Kevin Siefken determined that the two sentences can be served concurrently.

Amson pleaded guilty to the two charges on April 1st, and he was convicted the same day.  As a result of his guilty pleas, two counts of felony 2nd degree assault with a dangerous weapon, three misdemeanor counts of domestic assault and a petty misdemeanor charge for possession of drug paraphernalia against Armson in the case were all dismissed.
