The man who made a Facebook threat against the Camden Central School District earlier this year has been sentenced to prison time.

Bradley Davis Jr. was sentenced Wednesday in Oneida County Court to 1 1/3 to 4 years in state prison. Davis was initially charged with making a terroristic threat, and he pleaded guilty to attempted making a terroristic threat in May.

In the early morning hours on March 5, the Oswego Police Department was notified by an acquaintance of Davis that Davis had sent him concerning messages on Facebook, where he indicated that he planned to shoot up an unidentified school within the Camden Central School District.

Camden schools were closed that day because Davis’ whereabouts were unknown, and he was eventually found at a friend’s house in Oneida and taken into custody. An investigation found that Davis didn’t have any access to weapons at the time of his arrest, and it didn’t appear that there was any planning for an attack against the district.

When asked by the judge on Wednesday if he had learned anything, Davis replied, "Oh, yeah."
