SPOKANE — An Omak man accused of threatening Washington sheriffs online is asking that he be released from jail before his May 13 federal trial.
Jaydin Harvey Wesley Ledford, 23, is accused of posting death threats to Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich and other Washington sheriff’s who have questioned the constitutionality of Initiative 1639, which deals with firearms control.
Magistrate Judge John T. Rodgers was scheduled to review Ledford’s request on Monday, April 15, in U.S. District Court in Spokane. Ledford’s attorneys said a plan is in place for housing and mental health treatment if he is released.
Ledford is charged with one count of cyberstalking and two counts of threats in interstate communications. He has no previous felony record.
