LIMA — Hearing postponed in Lima bomb threat case
A pre-trial hearing was postponed Wednesday for a Lima woman accused of making telephone bomb threats against Lima schools.
Amanda K. Hunt’s hearing, before Allen County Common Pleas Judge Richard Warren, was rescheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Hunt, 28, is accused of making bomb threats to Lima Senior High School on March 19 and March 27, and making another bomb threat to Lima South Middle School on March 16. In all three incidents, emergency responders had to evacuate and search the building, a process that takes at least four hours.
Also Wednesday, Hunt’s attorney filed a motion to suppress statements filed as evidence.
She faces three counts of inducing panic. She could be sentenced to eight years in prison for each of the second-degree felony counts.
Hunt remains in Allen County Jail with bail set at $75,000. Her jury trial before Judge Warren is set to begin at 8:45 a.m. Aug. 27.
