Rushford man pleads guilty to 2 of 13 charges from 2021
(ABC 6 News) – A Rushford man’s jury trial has been canceled after he entered a guilty plea to two out of 13 charges from restraining order violation-turned-altercation with police in June of 2021.
Ibraheem Farah Hamza Khalifa entered a guilty plea to the charges of firearm violation-felon convicted of a crime of violence (a felony) and violate a restraining order-within 10 years or two or more priors (another felony).
His review hearing is scheduled for May 27, with a sentencing July 11.
Khalifa was charged with seven felonies, including the above, three gross misdemeanors, and one misdemeanor after police responded to a report that he was violating a restraining order.
Khalifa allegedly fled the police officers, stopped his vehicle in the middle of Airport Road near Hwy. 30, and pointed a gun at his own head and officers.
He also allegedly poured gasoline on his car and set it on fire. He set the gun down and was taken into custody shortly thereafter.
