NYC professor who threatened reporter with machete pleads guilty to menacing

A New York City college professor who threatened a reporter while wielding a machete in May, pled guilty in court on Monday to menacing.

As part of the plea deal, 45-year-old Shellyne Rodriguez must complete 13 months of behavioral therapy.

Her next court date is scheduled for May 15, 2024, which is intended to ensure Rodriguez complies with the terms of the plea agreement.

About 250 people were allegedly arrested that night, including Rodriguez, and the NYPD allegedly held them in tight quarters during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the lawsuit. 

The NYPD denied the accusations in court filings last March. The case continues to wind its way through the judicial system.
