Charges dropped against man accused of threatening Colo. representative
DENVER -- Charges were dropped Friday morning against a man accused of making threats to Colorado Rep. Rhonda Fields. Franklin Sain faced one charge of harassment and one charge of attempting to influence a public official, which is a felony. Those charges were filed by District Attorney Mitch Morrisey after Sain sent threatening messages to Fields that repeatedly used the N-word and the C-word. Fields was the sponsor of a bill to require universal background checks on all gun sales and transfers and another that would ban high-capacity magazines of 15 rounds or more.
