Threatening school janitor avoids prison time
Clark County, MO —
A now-former northeast Missouri school custodian accused of making a terrorist threat managed to avoid prison time.
Amanda Joy Miller, 38, of Kahoka, Missouri, was sentenced last Friday in a Clark County courtroom.
She was given a four-year suspended sentence and placed on five years probation.
Miller was a custodian at Clark County Middle School back in late October 2018 when she wrote a threatening note on a stall in the girl's restroom.
The note said everyone at the school was going to die, prompting the cancellation of classes while law enforcement came to Clark County schools to investigate.
The investigation led authorities to Miller, who later pleaded guilty to Second-Degree Making a Terrorist Threat.
Miller is not only the one who wrote the note, but she was also the one who reported her supposed discovery to school administrators.
The superintendent told our sister station, KTVO the message had been erased, but before that happened, Miller had taken a picture of it with her cell phone and sent it to school officials.
