Cobb Sells House in Leith--Case May Go to Trial


White supremacist Craig Cobb sells his house in Leith.

Documents at the Grant County clerk of court's office show he transferred ownership of two properties Monday.

One of those properties was his house.

The property was purchased by a Carson man.

At one time Cobb owned nine properties in Leith.

After this sale he owns only three.

Cobb was arrested in November on seven counts of terrorizing.

He had his final pretrial hearing today in Leith.

Prosecuting attorney Todd Schwarz says there's still time to negotiate a plea deal.

And he'll consider the sale of Cobb's properties during those negotiations.

Obviously if he's going to be completely away from these folks I'll take that into consideration but at this point it's just a rumor until I see something definite.

Obviously if he's not going to own the property, if he's deeding it, he has no reason to come back to Leith, I'll take that into consideration in making decisions.

Judge Gail Haggerty gave the lawyers three weeks to work out a deal.

If they can't, Cobb will stand trial.

Schwarz says as negotiations progress he is talking with the victims as well as Cobb and his lawyer.

Their main concern is they don't want this man causing them any further problems or their families. Whether that be in person or online as had been done in the past. And you can't blame them.

Schwarz says he is ready if the case goes to trial.

The man who was with Cobb on the day they carried guns through Leith is prepared to testify against him.

Schwarz says the testimony from Kynan Dutton will show a picture of Cobb's intent that day.
