Federal Dam man missing after capsized canoe found on Leech Lake

Judge orders man to serve 29 months for threatening Cass Co. deputy

WALKER - A 31-year-old man has been ordered to spend 29 months in prison for threatening a Cass County sheriff's deputy.

Robert Joseph Jones appeared Monday in district court, where Judge David Harrington handed down the sentence.

Last month, a jury convicted Jones on the felony charge.

According to court papers, a Cass County deputy responded to a call about a fight at a Cass Lake residence. The deputy identified Jones, who had a warrant for his arrest.

While being taken to jail, Jones made several threats to the deputy, stated he was affiliated with the Native Mob gang and said he would find out where the deputy lived.

Jones previously has been convicted on two felony third-degree assaults, three felony fourth-degree assaults against a peace officer and terroristic threats.
