Sentencing delayed for man found guilty of making terrorist threat

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

Sentencing was delayed Thursday for a man found guilty of making a terrorist threat against a school. 

According to District Attorney Brian Jones, the reason for the delay is because Smoak's son is in South Carolina where he will be graduating high school and wont be available as a witness in the sentencing hearing. 

In March, a jury found Thomas Brian Smoak guilty of making a terrorist threat and possession of a deadly weapon.

Smoak drove onto the Athens High School campus with a loaded shotgun in his van because he was allegedly angry after the school suspended his son for making a racial slur in May 2010.

Sentencing for Smoak will continue July 2nd. He currently remains in the Limestone County Jail.
