Salem Man Pleads Guilty to Threatening a Public Official and Aggravated Domestic Battery

August 4, 2017

A 26-year-old Salem man has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of threatening a public official and an unrelated aggravated domestic battery.

Sean Wimberly of Deer Path Drive entered the pleas Wednesday in Marion County Court and was sentenced to four years probation, 180 days in the Marion County Jail, ordered to undergo drug evaluation and treatment as well as pay court costs.

Wimberly admitted to threatening to kill a Kinmundy Police Officer and his family when getting out of jail following a DUI arrest. He also admitted to strangling Brittany Finley in an incident last month. Wimberly was ordered to have no contact with her.

Several charges were dropped as part of the plea. They include two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon for having an uncased gun with ammunition nearby, aggravated battery to a police officer, the driving under the influence charge, and being a pedestrian under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
