ALBERT LEA, Minn. – A man arrested for sticking a gun in someone’s mouth and threatening to shoot is sentenced.
Michael Ray Sanders, 45 of Chicago, Illinois, was arrested in June after a man told Albert Lea police that when he refused to let Sanders use his phone, Sanders pulled out a gun and put in in the victim’s mouth, breaking one of his teeth. According to the victim, Sanders said over and over again “I’m going to shoot you!”
Court documents state that after ripping a silver necklace off the man’s neck and taking $150 in cash from his pocket, Sanders took the gun out of the man’s mouth and walked away.
Sanders pleaded guilty to terroristic threats in July and is being sentenced to 49 days in the Freeborn County Jail and five years of supervised probation. Sanders must also pay $350 in restitution and do 40 hours of community service.
