Stanley Miller, Minot, sentenced for menacing

Stanley Leon Miller, 42, Minot, originally charged with Class C felony terrorizing for reportedly threatening to stab another inmate in the neck with a pencil, pleaded guilty on Monday to Class A misdemeanor menacing.

Court records show that Judge Richard Hagar sentenced him to 360 days in jail, concurrent with a sentence he is already serving in another case, and ordered Miller to pay $625 in court costs.

According to the probable cause affidavit filed with the court, the victim was watching TV on Aug. 29 at the Ward County Jail when Miller approached him and started asking questions. Miller told the victim not to talk to him anymore and the victim agreed. Then Miller told the victim to push the medical buzzer so he would be transferred out of the cell block or Miller would stab him with the pencil.
