Bench warrant issued for man who threatened York police officers

YORK – Randall Olachia, 54, of Lincoln, who was convicted after threatening harm against three York Police officers, was to be sentenced this past week. But because he didn’t show up for the sentencing proceedings, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.

Earlier, Olachia appeared for a status hearing in York County District Court, during which he pleaded no contest to three counts of third degree assault – each count is a Class 1 misdemeanor. He was initially charged with three counts of terroristic threats, which were each a Class 3A felony. He was facing the possibility of up to three years in prison for each count; due to the plea agreement he is now facing a possible maximum sentence of one year in jail for each count.

The details regarding the nature threats have not been provided.

Sentencing will be rescheduled, pending him being taken into custody.
