A Columbia man was convicted this week in Lancaster County Court of threatening to stab his probation officer.
A local jury deliberated about 15 minutes before convicting 34-year-old Steven L. Andrews Jr. of misdemeanor terroristic threats.
Assistant District Attorney Mari Andracchio presented evidence that Andrews made the threat last year in a meeting with a counselor at Lancaster County Prison.
The counselor then passed along the threat to her supervisor and the probation officer.
Lancaster County Judge David Ashworth will order sentence after a background investigation in a couple months.
ADA Andracchio presented testimony from the probation officer who recalled numerous prior meetings with Andrews in which he discussed a fascination with knives and stabbings.
Lancaster County Detective Dean Miller (ret.) filed the charge.
