Attorney General Andy Beshear and his Office of Special Prosecutions today announced a Clinton County man has pleaded guilty to wanton endangerment, criminal mischief and terroristic threatening.

Daniel R. Guffey, 53, of Albany, pleaded guilty June 18 in Clinton Circuit Court to one count each of first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree criminal mischief and first-degree terroristic threatening.
