A man is facing up to three years in prison after pleading guilty to making terroristic threats.

John Michael Johnston, 28, pleaded guilty Wednesday to making threats of terroristic acts, according to a news release from the Kanawha County Prosecutor's Office.

On March 10, Johnston was asked to leave the Rite Aid on Washington Street East after he had previously been banned. After leaving, the release said Johnston called the store and left a voicemail saying, "I will stab, shoot, punch, it's going to be really bad."

Johnston now faces one to three years in prison and fine of up to $25,000.

He will be sentenced at 2 p.m. Sept. 25.

Johnston is currently being held in the South Central Regional Jail on $10,000 bond or 10 percent cash.
