Facebook Threats Land Baldwin County Man in Prison

Facebook comments landed a Baldwin County man in prison for five years.

On August 9, 2012, Steven Martin posted a comment on Facebook describing his "desires" to be famous, and felt the only way to accomplish this goal was to walk into an elementary school and shoot someone.

The threat did not name a specific name or location.

The Milledgeville Police Department was tipped off about the post and immediately arrested Martin.

Martin received the maximum sentence of 5 years, with the first two in confinement and the remainder on probation.

Fred Bright, the District Attorney for the Ocmulgee Judicial District, said the sentence sends a "no-tolerance" policy.
