Scott Gudmundsen, a former law enforcement officer, held two roofers at gunpoint, including a black CSU soccer player.
LARIMER COUNTY, Colorado. – The former judicial officer who accused two roofers of being Antifa and held her at gunpoint was given four-year suspended parole Tuesday morning during a conviction in an 8th judicial district.
Scott Gudmundsen, 66, was arrested in June after addressing the salespeople.
Gudmundsen pleaded guilty to a Class 5 crime at a March 18 hearing. During the hearing, he admitted that he threatened the sellers and used a gun.
One of these sellers was Barry Wesley, a black soccer player at Colorado State University.

The prison sentence for threatening charges is usually 1 to 3 years with a two-year suspended sentence. However, due to an agreed agreement between Gudmundsen’s team and the prosecutor’s office, the judge had two options: probation or 30 months for corrections in the community.
It was previously recommended that Gudmundsen be given an evaluation in the Wellness Court, which is an alternative to imprisoning people with mental health problems. However, the judge said he was not accepted into that program.
District Judge Carroll Brinegar said she decided to go on parole because it would keep Gudmundsen under supervision for as long as possible.
As part of his probation, he was also ordered to observe the following provisions:
- 90 days imprisonment (will be credited for approximately nine months already served).
- Must undergo psychosocial counseling and adhere to UCHealth’s AIM (At-Risk Intervention and Mentoring) program.
- GPS monitoring for a minimum of three months and up to six months.
- Not allowed within 100 meters of either victim.
- Now you are not allowed to own or possess firearms.
- No alcohol or other substances may be used without a prescription.
- Subject to random substance tests.
Brinegar said Gudmundsen would be retried on trial if he breached any of the terms of his parole.
Gudmundsen’s family has cited mental health problems as the root of the incident.
In statements made prior to the sentencing, both Gudmundsen and his lawyer said he was very remorseful and that multiple brain injuries, PTSD, and the ongoing mental effects of anesthesia after roughly six weeks of surgery contributed to his actions that day.

Wesley and his colleague worked for a roofing company and went door-to-door doing business in a Loveland neighborhood. Gudmundsen is accused of calling 911, kneeling on Wesley’s neck and sticking a gun in his back.
Before Gudmundsen accepted the informed consent form, he faced two threatening charges, one of impersonating a police officer, two charges of illegal use of a weapon, and two charges of wrongful imprisonment.
During the trial against him, he remained behind bars in Larimer County and was unable to post the $ 50,000 bail that was imposed on him.
