MANTI, Utah — A former Snow College student pleaded guilty last week to attempt of terroristic threat made to the school in September.

Zachary Baird, 19, made a threat on a website right before Homecoming events, a police investigation revealed in October.

The threat appeared on the Snow College Confessions Facebook page. Ephraim County prosecutor Kevin Daniels said the page is not affiliated with the school.

A portion of the post read, “Let’s just say homecoming this weekend is gonna go out with a bang.”

Information from subpoena for Internet records led investigators to Baird.

Baird pleaded guilty on Dec. 10 on the charge of attempted threat of terrorism, a class A misdemeanor.

According to court documents attorneys are working on making arrangements for the teen to serve jail time in Kane County.

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 21.

    As part of the plea bargin the prosecutor allowed him to plead guility to a class A misdemeanor. Since he wasn’t convicted of a felony a prison sentence wasn’t an option.
