Romig found guilty

Francis Conrad Romig Jr. of 174 Main St., Apt. 507, Tidioute, was found guilty of three misdemeanors in a jury trial on Monday before Judge Maureen Skerda, and an additional summary charge by the court.

The guilty verdicts were for a first-degree misdemeanor of terroristic threats, the threat to commit a crime of violence with the intent to terrorize another or in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror; a second-degree misdemeanor for attempting by physical menace to put another in fear of imminent serious bodily injury and a second-degree misdemeanor for recklessly endangering another person. The summary charge was harassment.

All charges were based on holding the victim’s throat with his left hand while holding a 12-inch long silver knife in the air saying, “I should slit your throat.”

A charge of aggravated assault, a second-degree felony and an additional charge of simple assault, a second-degree misdemeanor were not prosecuted.
