Carter pleads guilty

The man taken into custody following a 5 and 1/2 hour standoff on Leffel Road in north La Grande on Feb. 22  pleaded guilty Monday morning to charges of menacing and recklessly endangering another person.

Gregory Scott Carter, 48, was arrested after allegedly holding four of his children, all under 18, against their will at this home on 62352 Leffel Road.

The standoff ended peacefully when Carter was taken into custody at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 22 by the Union County Tactical Team which is comprised of Union County Sherrif's Offece officers.

Carter told Union County Circuit Court Judge Russell West on Monday that he was guilty of both charges and apologized.

"I'm sorry about the whole situation," Carter said.

West then admonished Carter.

"What you did was inexcusable," West said.

After Carter pleaded guilty he was sentenced to 24 months probation for each conviction. Terms of the probation for the menacing conviction include 30 days of jail time in the Union County Correctional Facility. Carter may receive credit for time served since he was arrested.

Carter will also be required to pay a fine of $440 and attorney fees of $300 for the menacing conviction in addition to serving 30-days of jail time for the count of recklessly endangering another person.

This jail term will run consecutively with the jail sentence Carter will serve for this menacing conviction.

He was fined $940 for the recklessly endangering conviction but the fine was suspended.
