School Bomb Threat Case Goes to Trial
The case against a local man accused of calling in a bomb threat to the Coleman High School will go to trial. A status conference was held Tuesday for 24-year-old Jacob D Peterson of Coleman who’s been charged with a felony count of making terrorist threats after he allegedly left a threatening voice mail for the district in October, forcing an evacuation. Law enforcement officers searched the school, but found no evidence of anything that presented any danger to students or staff. A pre-trial conference for Peterson has been set for March 30th and his two-day jury trial is scheduled to begin May 15th.
