Jail Sentence for Man Who Posted Twitter Threats
HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) - A South St. Paul man will spend some time behind bars for making threatening Twitter posts after getting a speeding ticket.
Twenty-one-year-old Harrison Rund was accused of making multiple threats to kill St. Paul police officers and a Minnesota trooper after he got the ticket from the State Patrol in February 2014.
Dakota County Judge Timothy McManus sentenced him Wednesday to 120 days in jail and three years of probation. Rund earlier entered a guilty plea to threatening violence, a felony.
