Farley gets 18 days

Glasgow woman pleaded guilty to making bomb threat

GLASGOW — A woman who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a telephoned bomb threat was sentenced Monday at the Barren County Courthouse.

Renee J. Farley, 39, of Glasgow, was sentenced to 18 days in jail and five years’ probation, is required to stay away from Barren County Board of Education property for five years and must complete 180 hours of community service. Barren Circuit Judge Phil Patton waived a $1,000 fee because Farley is indigent.

Commonwealth’s Attorney John Gardner said he thought the result was fair after speaking with the board of education. Robert Render, Farley’s attorney, declined to comment after the sentencing.

In January 2013, Farley called a convenience store near Temple Hill Elementary School and said there was a bomb at “the school.” The clerk thought the caller was talking about Temple Hill Elementary and notified the school, according to a previous Daily Times report about the incident.

Subpoenaed phone records from the South Central Rural Telephone Cooperative indicated the call was made from Farley’s cellphone.

Farley was indicted May 21 by a Barren County grand jury for first-degree terroristic threatening and tampering with physical evidence. After initially pleading not guilty, Farley changed her plea to guilty Nov. 4.
