Woman charged in Sandy Hook parent death threat due in court

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – A Florida woman accused of threatening the parent of a boy killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting because she thought it was a hoax is due in court.

Court records show a hearing is set Monday morning for 57-year-old Lucy Richards in Fort Lauderdale federal court. Richard was arrested Dec. 7 in Tampa on four felony counts of transmitting threats to Lenny Pozner, father of 6-year-old Noah Pozner who died in the 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

The Richards case is being prosecuted in Fort Lauderdale.

Others linked to the Sandy Hook massacre have reported harassment by conspiracy theorists who argue the event was staged to erode support for Second Amendment gun rights.

Court records do not list an attorney for Richards. One will likely be appointed Monday.
