A man accused of making terror threats toward Dothan police officers pleaded guilty Tuesday to a reduced charge of menacing, a misdemeanor.
Irby Franklin Jordan, 68, was sentenced to six months in jail but Circuit Judge Butch Binford agreed to suspend the term. In lieu of the jail sentence, Jordan will be on probation for the next two years. He was fined $500 and pay $225 a victim's restitution fund.
Jordan was arrested November 21, 2011 as officers were serving a warrant at his office in regard to material on computers. He is alleged to have told officers the computers would blow up and they would die.
Dothan Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Rachel David, in a press release following Jordan's arrest, said an officer suffered a broken foot during a confrontation and shoving between Jordon and investigators.
