MYRTLE CREEK, Ore. — A Myrtle Creek man was sentenced Monday after threatening to shoot people at area schools back in February.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says 22-year-old Wesley William Miller made the threats on his Facebook page on February 19, 2013. Officers contacted all the schools in the South Umpqua School District, which then went into lockdown.
After a brief struggle, Miller was taken into custody at his home around 10:30 a.m. and lodged in the Douglas County Jail.
Miller went in front of a judge Monday, July 8, and was sentenced for seven counts including: unlawful manufacture of a schedule II controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana, resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, two counts of disorderly conduct and initiating a false report.
Miller will spend one year in jail and two years on probation.
