Charges could extend Spokane man’s 18-year term

A gang member already sentenced to 18 years in prison in a harassment case that included threats to a Spokane elementary school faces new harassment charges.

“I’m not saying nothing, your honor,” said Larry Glenn Gatewood, 36, when Superior Court Judge Greg Sypolt asked him to enter a plea to new charges of making harassing telephone calls, harassment and intimidation of a witness on Tuesday.

Sypolt entered not-guilty pleas for Gatewood.

Gatewood is accused of making harassing phone calls to witnesses who testified against him at a court hearing in February. The calls came just after Gatewood was sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Gatewood was wanted by police in fall 2008 for assaulting his ex-girlfriend’s children and making a threatening call that briefly locked down Logan Elementary School. He also for months made harassing phone calls to his estranged wife at home and at work, some in the presence of Spokane police officers.
