The Hutchinson News reports that a Reno County jury found Brian Treaster guilty Wednesday of stalking and criminal threat, as well as misdemeanor counts of violation of a protection order and battery.

Treaster was acquitted of two counts each of phone harassment and disorderly conduct and a second count of violating a protection order.

The charges stemmed from incidents in 2019, when Treaster confronted a woman at her workplace while he was still Bushton’s police chief, then later confronted and shoved the woman’s boyfriend and made threatening calls to the pair.
