LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas man who police say posed in battlefield gear and assault weapons for an internet video saying he intended to shoot “Satanists” and “homosexuals” is due to face a judge this week on terror threat and conspiracy charges.
A defense attorney for Bryce Matthew Cuellar didn’t immediately respond Tuesday to messages ahead of a court appearance Thursday.
The 24-year-old Cuellar could be facing up to 20 years in state prison. He remains jailed on $150,000 bail.
Police say Google alerted authorities July 1 to the YouTube post, and Cuellar was arrested hours later.
By then, he’d attacked his wife.
He pleaded no contest July 6 to misdemeanor domestic violence.
Prosecutor Michael Dickerson says the felony case was delayed while Cuellar was evaluated by doctors who found him fit for trial.
