BC-US--School Threats-Man,1st Ld-Writethru, US
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky man won’t serve any jail time after he tweeted threats against the high school attended by Purdue football coach Jeff Brohm, who turned down the head coach position at the University of Louisville.
News outlets report 29-year-old Thor Wiljanen admitted to third-degree terroristic threatening Thursday. He had been arrested in November and originally charged with felony terroristic threatening.
Among other conditions, the Louisville man was ordered to not have any contact with Trinity High School. He also cannot post about Trinity on social media. If Wiljanen breaks any condition of his release, he could be incarcerated for 180 days.
Wiljanen tweeted he would burn Trinity down if Brohm didn’t accept the University of Louisville head coaching job.
Because of the tweets, school administrators canceled classes. Brohm later announced he would remain Purdue’s head coach.
