CARSON, N.D. (AP) - A district judge is giving prosecutors and a jailed white supremacist accused of terrorizing his fellow residents in a small North Dakota town three weeks to work out a plea deal.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that 62-year-old Craig Cobb spent less than a minute in the courtroom for Monday’s pretrial conference.

Cobb has pleaded not guilty to seven counts of terrorizing and could face up to 35 years in prison if convicted.

Cobb and Kynan (KEE’-nuhn) Dutton were arrested in Leith (leeth) in mid-November after allegedly terrorizing residents with guns. They said they were patrolling the town because of violence and harassment directed at them.

The 29-year-old Dutton was sentenced to time served and two years probation on misdemeanor counts of menacing and disorderly conduct. He must testify against Cobb.
