A man accused of threatening to kill two Madison County social workers has been convicted of making a terrorist threat.
A Madison County jury found Donald Jenner, 46, of Syracuse, guilty Friday after two days of deliberation.
Jenner made the threat May 3 after an Onondaga County caseworker told Jenner's 19-year-old girlfriend that she would have to move from the couple's Syracuse apartment to regain custody of her son, authorities said. The girlfriend had lived in Madison County before moving to Syracuse.
Jenner allegedly said he would shoot the Onondaga County worker and two of her counterparts in Madison County.
Onondaga County officials charged Jenner with aggravated harassment, a misdemeanor to which he pleaded guilty and served six months in jail.
Defense attorney Todd Dexter said he believed that he had a strong appeal of the Madison County conviction since Onondaga County officials, unlike Madison County officials, did not feel Jenner had made any terrorist threats.
