WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- A Williston man accused of tying nooses around the necks of his son and ex-wife has pleaded guilty to terrorizing and reckless endangerment.
Authorities allege that Isaac Gould also tied the other end of the noose that was around his son's neck to a vehicle and drove a short distance in July 2013. The age of the boy isn't clear.
Gould pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges involving his son under the stipulation that the charges involving his ex-wife be dismissed. Judge David Nelson said he will review the results of a presentence investigation before agreeing.
The terms of the deal call for Gould to be sentenced to serve eight years in prison, with credit for time already served. Gould is in his late 30s.
