DEATH THREAT BASED ON FAKE NEWS SITE
fort lauderdale, fla.» 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 pleaded not guilty Monday and was barred from visiting websites that promote such false conspiracy theories.
Lucy Richards, 57, 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, Conn.
Others linked to the massacre have reported harassment by conspiracy theorists who argue the event was staged to erode support for gun rights. Richards said she owns no weapons. The Associated Press
