Fremont Man Gets Prison for Threatening Girlfriend

jailFREMONT, Neb. (AP) — A Fremont man has been sentenced to prison for threatening to kill his girlfriend.

According to court records, 39-year-old Gary O’Dey was sentenced on Monday in Dodge County District Court. He’d pleaded guilty to making a terroristic threat and domestic assault.

Prosecutors say a woman told Fremont police on April 19 that she and O’Dey had gotten into an argument the night before but she allowed him to stay in her basement while she went upstairs to sleep.

She told officers that she awoke to find O’Dey next to her. She says that before he struck her, he said: “If you didn’t have kids I’d murder you.”

The judge gave O’Dey consecutive sentences of 20 to 60 months for the threat and a year for the assault.
