North Dakota Farmer Found Guilty of Terrorizing

Posted: Updated:

A Lakota, North Dakota farmer arrested in 2011 after several run-ins with law enforcement has been convicted of terrorizing.

A jury Thursday night found Rodney Brossart guilty of the felony terrorizing charge but acquitted him for the theft of 6 cattle that proved the beginning of the unusual case.

Brossart and several members of his family were involved in a summer-long standoff with police two years ago.

Three of his sons also face felony terrorizing charges, their trials have not been scheduled.

Brossart faces up to 5 years in prison.  Sentencing is set for January 14, 2014.
