Another delay in del Lago threat case

A Wayne County man accused of making threats against del Lago Resort & Casino has been granted another delay in his case — and some words of warning from a judge.

“You’ve got a tough case here, Mr. Furey,” Acting Seneca County Judge Daniel Doyle told Scott Furey. “You have a lot of exposure here.”

Furey was in court Tuesday with his new attorney, Michael Witmer. Doyle scheduled a March 5 conference and appearance.

Furey, of Walworth, faces a felony charge of making a terroristic threat and a misdemeanor charge of criminal trespass. The charges stem from an incident in January 2018, when state police found Furey sleeping on a couch in the casino’s hotel lobby.

Furey was banned from the property in 2017, when casino officials accused him of engaging in fraudulent gaming activities.

While being processed at the state police barracks in Waterloo, troopers said Furey made several threats to return to the casino and commit acts of violence in retaliation for his arrest. Police did not disclose the nature of the threats.

Furey has been free on $10,000 bail since his arrest.
