Jail term ordered in menacing, firearms case

NEWPORT — An Eddyville man was sentenced Wednesday to 75 days jail on misdemeanor charges related to a string of disturbing incidents, in which he allegedly threatened to harm people in the area.

Mark Alan Ghormley, 46, was sanctioned at an afternoon hearing in Lincoln County Circuit Court before Judge Thomas Branford.

The sentence stemmed from July 18 guilty pleas to one count of menacing, and two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm. In exchange for the guilty pleas, the Lincoln County District Attorney’s Office dismissed five other misdemeanor charges in the case.

Ghormley was also ordered to enroll in a mental health program no later than Oct. 1. Additionally, he was sentenced to 30 days jail for a separate misdemeanor explosives charge, and given credit for time served.

“I think you need help with mental health,” said Branford while addressing Ghormley at the 10-minute hearing.
