ND man sentented in terrorizing case

A Grafton man was sentenced Thursday to two years behind bars after pleading guilty to a felony charge of conspiracy to commit terrorizing.

Joseph Julian Martinez, 22, and four others went to a Grafton residence to fight a man in September, court records state.

During the fight, one of the men with Martinez pointed a semiautomatic handgun at several people, and Martinez yelled, "Shoot 'em all," court documents state. The man with the gun reportedly took three shots at the residence.

For allegedly egging on the man, Martinez was charged with solicitation of murder, but that felony charge was dismissed.
