EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A former student who threatened a shooting at Oregon State University has been sentenced to time served and will be on federal supervised release for three years.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in the District of Oregon said, 23-year-old Christopher Strahan pleaded guilty Tuesday to making interstate threats. He has been in custody for about a year.
He was also barred from entering the campuses or contacting the employees of OSU or Linn-Benton Community College, where he also took classes.
Authorities were alerted in February 2018 of threatening tweets posted by username "Hard Belly Dorm." Detectives linked Strahan to the username and arrested him.
Strahan was arrested a year earlier for threatening a campus shooting. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, and was sentenced to 20 days in jail and probation.
During supervised release, Strahan must follow a treatment plan, which his lawyer said, his family fully supports.
