Phelps A "Threat To The Community", Says Prosecutor

Last updated on Thursday, August 18, 2011

(MARTINSVILLE) - There’s more controversy in the case of a Martinsville teenager serving 35 years in the shooting of a young rival.

Morgan County Prosecutor Steve Sonnega says 16-year-old Michael Phelps' past behavior and threats he made behind bars show he poses a serious threat to the community.

Sonnega is preparing for a pre-trial hearing in yet another case that involves seven more charges. The latest charges stem from statements and threats authorities say Phelps made in jail.
