Verdict reached for man accused of threatening a judge


TAYLOR COUNTY - The verdicts are in for a man accused of threatening to kill a judge.

A Taylor County jury found Patrick Staton 'not guilty' of that charge, but he was convicted of seven others, including possessing improvised explosives.

Staton, from Medford, was arrested after officers got a tip he was making explosives and planned on targeting a Taylor County judge, district attorney and detective. A search of his home and car turned up items believed to be used to make explosives.

Staton will be sentenced in April.
