RALEIGH, N.C. — A father responsible for prompting an Amber Alert will spend 120 days in jail.
A judge reduced charges against Byron Reed to misdemeanor charges. Reed originally faced felony charges for threatening a social worker before taking off with his twin boys.
The charges were reduced because the social worker is not a court official.
Reed and his wife took his children to a relative's home when they saw the Amber Alert on TV.
