Jury takes 20 minutes to convict Mayfield man over Glens Falls threats
A Mayfield man has been found guilty of making threats to blow up a Glens Falls medical device plant.
It took a jury 20 minutes to convict Jesse Bedell of leaving threatening messages on voicemails of two recruiters for Medline.
He said he was upset that the company had rescinded a job offer because he did not disclose on his application that he had a misdemeanor petit larceny conviction.
He said that he was going to kill people and blow up the facility.
Bedell’s attorney had attempted to argue that he was drunk when he left those messages.
Sentencing is scheduled for June 12 at 12:30 p.m.
