Threats Land Sherman Man In Hot Water With Homeland Security

Posted:
SHERMAN, TX -- A man accused of threatening workers at a government office in Sherman enters a guilty plea.

Martin Kyle Coppedge, 27, of Sherman, was arrested this week on a warrant for terroristic threat impairing government service.

Sherman police say he made threatening comments during multiple phone calls with the Social Security office on Peyton Street.

They had to call the Department of Homeland Security. A grand jury indicted Coppedge this month. He posted a $20,000 bond.

Then, he pleaded guilty on Friday.  He was sentenced to 3 years of probation. But, if he violates it, he faces a 5-year-prison term.
