The Saratoga Springs man who threatened to take local schoolchildren hostage has received jail time, Saratoga Wire is reporting.
Last spring, Brent Dickinson used a computer at the Saratoga Springs Public Library to make the threats against the children. He also threatened to assassinate President Obama from a computer in the Saesselin Art Building, but that case is being handled by federal authorities.
Dickinson appeared in Saratoga County Court today and was sentenced to 1 to 3 years in prison. He is being treated for an unspecified medical condition, and has been ordered to stay away from all schools in Saratoga County, the Public Library, Skidmore College campus, and all YMCA branches.
