Okla. man pleads guilty to Wyoming threats
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma man has pleaded guilty to threatening to commit violent acts in Wyoming Wednesday.
In Jan., Casper, Wyoming, authorities received multiple reports of threats with different types of weapons.
Authorities said the threat was posted from Oklahoma City on the internet bulletin board service, 4chan.org.
The threat came not long after a murder/suicide at a Casper college.
As a precaution, officials placed 40 schools on lockdown.
Glenn Allen Kirkham, 34, admitted he made the threat at the hearing Wednesday.
He is facing up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine plus mandatory restitution for the cost of the emergency responders.
He is due back in court for sentencing in June.
