Benedict man charged with terroristic threats, domestic assault causing injury, changes plea

YORK – Cody Brouillette, 29, of Benedict, was initially charged with terroristic threats, a Class 3A felony, and domestic assault, a Class 1 misdemeanor, last year. This week, in York County District Court, he pleaded no contest to the Class 1 misdemeanor and the felony was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

The case began when it was reported to the York County Sheriff’s Department that Brouillette was driving drunk at a high rate of speed, according to court documents, with a woman in the vehicle who he was threatening to kill.

A short time later, a caller reported a reckless vehicle with Brouillette’s license number, which was turning into Benedict. Deputies located the vehicle at a residence there and when speaking with Brouillette, according to court documents, he denied threatening the woman.

The victim said he drove in excess of 100 mph and threatened to kill her.

Court documents indicate text messages sent by the victim to another person, during the alleged situation, were found, confirming the texted message of “he is going to kill me and if I don’t reply he hurt me” had been sent.

He is now facing a possible maximum sentence of one year in jail.

Sentencing has been set for April 8.
