Illinois resident pleads guilty to mailing threats to schools
Valtrez Stewart, 29, of Oak Lawn, Ill., recently pleaded guilty in federal court to mailing bomb threats to four Atlanta area schools, including Stephenson Middle School in DeKalb.
U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said Stewart mailed threats to at least four schools between Jan. 28, 2011, and Feb. 2, 2011. The threats contained collages of newspaper and magazine clippings of words and numbers. The messages claimed that a bomb would detonate at the school killing at least 20 people, and promised brutal murders if money was not paid to certain individuals by a certain date, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.
Stewart pleaded guilty to mailing the threats to Northview High School, Marietta High School, Stephenson Middle School and Meadowcreek High School. He was indicted in July 2011, and pleaded guilty to four counts of mailing threatening communications on Jan. 27. He could receive a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
