Hearing Today For Tampa Woman In Sandy Hook Parent Threat

Tampa, Fla. (970 WFLA)- A Tampa woman will be in a Ft. Lauderdale federal courtroom today to plead guilty to threatening the parent of a boy killed in the 2012 mass shooting at a school in Newtown, Connecticut, because she thought it was a hoax.

The change of plea hearing is set for 57-year-old Lucy Richards, who is scheduled to plead guilty to a charge of interstate transmission of a threat to injure.   Richards also will be sentenced today.  

She had earlier plead not guilty to transmitting threats to Lenny Pozner, the father of 6-year-old Noah Pozner who died in the Sandy Hook School shooting.
