A Glidden man accused of causing more than $3,000 in damage to road signs in Glidden with a BB gun has reached a plea agreement with the court. Thirty-seven-year-old Andrew James Tuel submitted his guilty plea to the District Court for Carroll County on Thursday, Dec. 28. Under the agreement, Tuel, who was originally charged with second-degree criminal mischief, a class D felony, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal mischief, an aggravated misdemeanor, agreed to pay for the damages and was ordered to serve 90 days in the Carroll County jail with all but five days suspended and credit for time served. Tuel will be placed on probation for a period of two years, and the court’s criminal record will be expunged if completed successfully. Tuel admitted to damaging multiple signs near the intersection of Nevada and East 1st Streets on Aug. 12, 2017.
