Two year sentence in mail theft, intimidating a witness

Stealing mail is no laughing matter.  Just ask Coy Wagers, 27, of Manchester, as he now faces two years in prison.

Wagers entered a guilty plea to theft of mail and intimidating a witness Monday morning in Clay Circuit Court.  He admitted that he stole mail in April belonging to Robert Griffin, of Elk Creek.  He also admitted to threatening Griffin to influence his testimony.

Wagers was given two years on each charge to run concurrently for a total of two years.  Charges of menacing and criminal mischief were dismissed.  Wagers was released on bond following the hearing and will reappear in court on April 6th for formal sentencing.
