SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California student has been sentenced to six months jail for posting Facebook threats claiming he planned Virginia Tech-style violence at a small community college.
San Bernardino County prosecutors say 30-year-old Stanley Raymond Roring was sentenced Thursday as part of a plea deal for online threats against Crafton Hills College in Yucaipa.
The sentencing came the same day as a second Virginia Tech shooting.
In 2007, 32 people were killed by a gunman at the university.
Roring's Facebook postings warned of "genocide" in an attack similar to the 2007 killings.
The San Bernardino County Sun says Roring, who pleaded guilty to making criminal threats, was given credit for 103 days already served. The remaining 77 days will be served in a work release program.
