No Bond for Cobb & Dutton in Terrorizing Case

Posted:

Two white supremacists accused of terrorizing Leith residents will sit in jail without bond.

   Judge Thomas Schneider ordered no bond for Craig Cobb and Kynan Dutton this afternoon.
   Cobb and Dutton are charged with seven counts of Terrorizing.
   They were arrested Saturday in Leith after they were carrying guns through town.
   The men have moved into Leith to take over the town's government.
   Leith residents called for help because the men were confronting them with guns in a threatening and intimidating manner.
   Grant County Prosecutor Todd Schwartz requested the no bond order due to the escalating tensions between the group of white supremacists and the rest of the town and because Cobb is wanted in Canada for a hate crime.
   Schwartz says Leith residents are fearful of Cobb and Dutton.
   Terrorizing is a class C felony, which carries the maximum penalty of five years in prison. However, because the weapons were loaded, five of the terrorizing charges include mandatory minimum sentences of 2 years in prison.
