Atmore News reports that a Flomaton woman who helped three juveniles make threats against a Flomaton High School student in 2016 was sentenced to five years probation for her role in what has been referred to as the “Flomo Klown” incident that led to the lockdown of several area schools.

23-year-old Makayla Smith pleaded guilty to one count of terrorist threat.

The terms of Smith’s probation ban her from social media during her 60-month probationary period.

She was originally sentenced to ten years in prison, but the sentence was suspended and she was placed on probation.

If she violates the terms of her probation, she could reportedly be subject to the full 10-year sentence.

The threats led to the lockdown of Flomaton High School, Flomaton Elementary School, Escambia Academy and Escambia County High School, among others.
