(COLUMBUS) - A Bartholomew Circuit Court jury found suspended Hope Town Marshal Randy Bailey guilty of felony official misconduct and a misdemeanor charge of false informing.

The jury deliberated about three hours before reaching the verdict.

The charges stemmed from an incident over Memorial Day weekend in 2012, when Anthony Paul, a Hope resident, decided to confront Bailey on the front steps of the marshal's home over an incident the night before.

Paul was arrested for allegedly making a death threat against the marshal. However Paul was carrying a digital recorder in his pocket recording the conversation, which authorities found contained no death threats.

Bailey's sentencing hearing is set for March 24 at 8:30 a.m.
