A judge has sentenced a former university student to join the military for a post he made on Facebook that led to a lockdown at Faulkner University here.
Zachary Lambert, 23, agreed to plead guilty to the misdemeanor charge of harassing communications for a message that made reference to a deadly campus attack at Virginia Tech in 2007. He originally was charged with making a terrorist threat, a felony, and placed in jail on $500,000 bond.
Montgomery County Circuit Judge Tracy McCooey handed down a suspended three-month sentence and two years of probation, telling Lambert that he must join the military as a condition of his probation.
Query? If the military isn’t giving moral waivers, and if the military is trying to weed out “terrorists” what’s the chances the military will accept this person? It’s certainly been a long time since we’ve heard of these type of “conditions” related to civilian cases.
