A jackson man has pleaded guilty to making a terrorist threat in an effort to create grounds for a lawsuit against police. Duane Haffner is one of two men charged in the case.
Investigators say he called Jackson police from the recovery center where he was living and described a man he said was going to take a bomb into the county courthouse. Police say that man, Leotis Allen, planned to fake an injury during his arrest, sue the police department, and split a settlement with Haffner. Allen did not have a bomb.
Allen has pleaded not guilty. He goes before a judge later this month.
