MASON CITY — A Mason City man who pleaded guilty to drug and gun charges has been sentenced to a month in jail.
A criminal complaint states that late on the night of October 19th, 32-year-old Spencer Graves was driving in the 900 block of 16th Northeast. A person saw Graves driving at a high rate of speed and yelled at him to slow down. The person walked back inside his house then walked back out the rear door when he saw Graves standing on his property. The resident asked Graves to leave his property but Graves refused, with Graves later saying that he had a loaded firearm pointed at him. The victim saw the gun in Graves’ hand and immediately called 9-1-1.
Graves was later stopped near the intersection of 14th and North Hampshire, with officers saying they found a loaded rifle, a loaded CO2 gun, additional ammunition, and 13 grams of methamphetamine in the vehicle.
Graves originally pleaded not guilty to a Class B-level controlled substance violation, intimidation with a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure or provoke fear, having a used or expired drug tax stamp, operating while intoxicated and possession of meth first offense. As part of a plea agreement, he pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to deliver meth, assault with a dangerous weapon, operating while intoxicated and possession of meth.
District Judge Rustin Davenport on Monday sentenced Graves to 30 days in jail on the possession of meth charge, two days on the OWI charge, a suspended two years prison term with two years probation on the intimidation with a dangerous weapon charge, and issued a deferred judgment on the possession with the intent to deliver meth charge and placed him on five years probation.
