Terrance Johnson Jr. pleads guilty to reduced charge of facilitation of robbery

Terrance Deval Johnson Jr., 19, Minot, pleaded guilty on Monday in district court in Minot to a reduced charge of Class A misdemeanor facilitation of robbery on Sept. 10, 2019 in Minot. He had originally been charged with felony terrorizing and robbery.

Judge Stacy Louser sentenced him to 360 days in jail, with 228 days suspended, and gave him credit for 132 days already served in the Ward County Jail. He was placed on supervised probation for two years and ordered to have no contact with the victim. Louser also ordered him to pay $325 in court costs.

Johnson had originally been charged with robbery and terrorizing but had denied his involvement.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, two men broke into a woman’s Minot apartment, held her at gunpoint and stole her property. One of the robbers put a gun to the woman’s head. The woman described the suspects as two black males wearing hooded sweatshirts. She claimed that she recognized Johnson’s voice because he had been at her apartment and she had spoken with him a number of times. Her dog did not attack the suspects. The woman had argued on social media with Johnson a few days prior to the robbery.
