A Lyle man who threatened to kill someone and kicked their dog during an incident in Mapleview in August of 2020 has been sentenced in Mower County District Court.

34-year old Jeremy James Gilbert was sentenced last week to 70 days in jail for a misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty and 26 months in prison for a felony terroristic threats charge. 

Gilbert was arrested on August 30, 2020, after the Mower County Sheriff’s Office was contacted concerning an incident in Mapleview. Investigators reported that a dispute over some audio speakers resulted in Gilbert threatening to kill an adult male and kicking a dog.

Charges of first-degree burglary and fifth-degree assault were dismissed as part of a plea agreement in the case.  Gilbert was also sentenced Thursday to 21 months in prison for a felony 5th degree assault charge stemming from an incident on the evening of October 16th, 2017 where Gilbert assaulted a neighbor while drinking. An additional felony 5th degree assault charge was dismissed with Gilbert’s guilty plea in the case, and, in addition, Gilbert was convicted and sentenced Thursday to 23 months in prison for a felony terroristic threats charge stemming from an incident that took place on August 10th, 2020.  Felony charges for domestic assault, bodily harm and domestic assault, fear of bodily harm were dismissed when Gilbert pled guilty to the terroristic threats charge on March 26th.  

Judge Kevin Siefken determined that Gilbert will be able to serve all of the sentences concurrently,
