Michael D. Richardson, 26 formerly of Bainbridge, was found guilty in Chenango County Court Wednesday of making a terrorist threat, a Class D felony.

Richardson could face seven years in prison for threats described in letters to his estranged wife and mother-in-law, including a specific threat to retired Judge W. Howard Sullivan in which he described how he would walk calmly up to the judge and shoot him between the eyes and then escape in a stolen car.

The verdict came a day after the closing arguments by District Attorney Joseph McBride and Richardson's attorney.
