MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) _ A 19-year-old Lolo man has pleaded guilty to posting a threat against a Wyoming school on Facebook, but he says it was joke.
Erik Sven Wengren told Justice of the Peace Karen Orzech Thursday that his cousin, who lives in Gillette, posted about school shootings less than a week after the fatal shootings in Newtown Conn.
Wengren says he wrote in a joking response that he was going to shoot at his cousin's school.
He told Orzech that it was a terrible choice of words.
The Missoulian reports Wengren is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 9 on disorderly conduct. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 days in jail and a $100 fine.
