NORWICH – A Greene man requested a trial in Chenango County Court on Monday after being charged with making a terrorist threat and hearing he may have to pay $89,000 in restitution.

Andrew P. Riley, 48, of Greene, was charged with two counts of making a terrorist threat, a class D felony. Riley is facing 14 years in prison, along with three years of post-release supervision if convicted.

According to his indictment, on June 1, 2017, Riley called Raymond Corp. in Greene, New York and threatened to, "take his gun to the [business] and kill everybody."

The indictment states on June 6, 2017, another person overheard Riley saying he wanted to blow up the business.

Prosecutors are claiming the threat caused the company $89,193.25 in damages or lost revenue. Riley may have to pay that amount back as restitution if he is found guilty.

"We will be calling an expert in the trial," said Riley's defense attorney, Paul Battisti.

Battisti said his client was drinking alcohol at the time of the incident and suffered from alcohol induced amnesia, and had a history of alcohol abuse in the past.
