wilmoth(West Plains) – A teenager accused of threatening to kill classmates and a teacher at West Plains High School in December 2012 has been sentenced.

Online court documents state 19-year-old Zackary Wilmoth pleaded guilty to two counts of Terroristic Threatening, and was sentenced Thursday, July 24 in Howell County Circuit Court.

Wilmoth was sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years of probation. He will also be doing 100 hours of community service.

Wilmoth was arrested on Thursday, December 20, 2012 after turning himself in. He reportedly threatened to kill students at a school assembly, and then threatened a teacher if she came forward and reported him.

Due to the nature of the threat, and the shooting just days before at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the West Plains School District cancelled classes for that Friday so students can have time at home with their family, according to a release from the district.
