BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — One of two white supremacists accused of terrorizing residents in the small North Dakota town of Leith has pleaded guilty to reduced charges of menacing and disorderly conduct and is being released from jail.
Under terms of the plea agreement, 29-year-old Kynan Dutton must testify against Craig Cobb, who has pleaded not guilty to felony terrorizing.
Dutton moved into a home in Leith owned by Cobb after Cobb last year asked people with white power views to help him take over the town. The two were arrested in mid-November for allegedly terrorizing residents with guns.
Dutton will be on probation for two years. A conviction on one of seven counts will stay on his record, meaning he can no longer buy guns.
