IRONTON -- A former Liebert employee was convicted on a charge of making terroristic threats following a one-day trial in Lawrence County Common Pleas Court.

David Laber, 41, of Township Road 606, Ironton, faces up to three years in prison after being found guilty of the felony charge, said Mack Anderson, an assistant county prosecutor.

Final sentencing was set for Oct. 31.

Laber was convicted of threatening to shoot two Liebert employees and plant several bombs in the business. The jury was out about an hour before returning a guilty verdict.
