RAPID CITY, S.D. – A man accused of threatening to shoot a prosecutor at the federal courthouse in Rapid City has pleaded guilty to charges.
Steven McCann entered the plea late last week to threatening to assault, kidnap or murder a federal official. Two charges of contempt of court are to be dropped as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.
Officials say McCann was in court in December 2018 when a judge revoked his supervised release for possessing a gun. McCann became agitated and was taken to a cell where he threatened to shoot U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman in the head.
