Dismissed but read into the record for sentencing were a charge of second-degree recklessly endangering safety as domestic abuse, four more counts of second-degree recklessly endangering safety, two more counts of causing bodily harm with the probability of causing great bodily harm and four counts of endangering safety by reckless use of a firearm.

He also pressed the handgun to the faces of two of the four children and their mother, according to the complaint.
