A 57-year-old Lawrence man was sentenced to a year on probation Thursday stemming from an October incident in which he threatened another man with a gun.
Christopher J. Gorman was arrested Oct. 26 after a man flagged down a patrol car and told officers that Gorman had threatened him with a gun during an argument. When officers knocked on Gorman’s door in the 1300 block of Kentucky Street, he answered it with a .357 magnum revolver in his hand and was arrested.
In November, Gorman pleaded guilty to one count of criminal threat, as well as possession of marijuana.
Gorman received credit for 47 days spent in jail, and will also have to undergo a substance abuse evaluation.
