A man whose telephone threats led to lockdowns at four Superior schools will spend 160 days in jail.

Aaron Joe Williams, 39, pleaded no contest Aug. 20 in Douglas County Circuit Court to one count of domestic abuse threats to injure stemming from a threatening voice message sent to a Superior High School teacher on April 7. Charges of stalking, unlawful phone use-threaten with obscenity and bail jumping were dismissed.

Williams was sentenced to three years of probation and 160 days in jail. He was also ordered to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation, pay $300 in restitution and $664 in fines and court costs, and have no contact with the victim.

According to the criminal complaint, Williams left threatening, expletive-laden voice messages on the teacher’s phone, threatening to mess up her life and end her career, stating "I’m ready to (expletive) kill you."

The incident occurred on Election Day, which led to a conflict at Superior Middle School, which was also a polling site at the time. Although the school was put in a hold and secure state until Williams was arrested, the polling site and its entrance were not. The Election Day lockdown prompted city officials to move the site. Councilors will consider moving it to Central Assembly of God before the next election.
