(KAIR)--A Leavenworth man is going to prison for threatening a fast food employee at gunpoint.

28-year-old Stephen Charlton was sentenced Thursday in Leavenworth County District Court to one-year and three-months behind bars on a charge of aggravated assault.

According to a news release from Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson, the charge stemmed from a March 30 incident where Charlton went into Taco Bell and pointed a gun at an employee.

The employee told authorities he thought he was going to die and feared for his life.

According to Thompson, under regular circumstances applying to the charge, due to Charlton’s criminal history, he would have received probation. However, due to the use of the gun, a special rule applied making his sentence presumptive prison.

Thompson’s request for probation was denied.
