MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Minneapolis woman was sentenced to take down her Facebook page and to not participate in social networking for one year.
Sandra Kay Dockendorf pleaded guilty this Tuesday to misdemeanor disorderly conduct for posting a threat on Facebook referencing Eden Valley-Watkins High School last April.
According to a criminal complaint, the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office received a report on the morning of April 20 of a threat at Eden Valley-Wakins High School. At about 10:43 p.m. the night before, the owner of the Facebook page for the school posted a message that stated “I see dead people.”
The post forced the school to be put on lockdown for the day. Several members of the public who saw the post became alarmed and called the school out of concern.
Authorities learned that Dockendorf was the owner and creator of the Facebook page and has children at the school. She told police she posted the message.
Dockendorf has been placed on one year of unsupervised probation in Meeker County. She must also perform community service.
