Former custodian pleads not guilty to making school threat

December 29, 2018

BARRE, Vt. (AP) — A former school custodian accused of writing a threat on a bathroom mirror has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge in Vermont.

WCAX-TV reports that 51-year-old Richard Peck appeared in a Barre courtroom on Friday after being released from a hospital for mental health treatment.

He’s alleged to have written “I am going to kill you all” on mirrors in a boy’s bathroom this month. A detective wrote that Peck gave several accounts of what happened and that he apologized for his actions.

Peck was released into the custody of his wife after the hearing. A woman who answered a call to his home on Saturday declined comment.
