A Bullitt County teacher was fired in the fall of 2018, about two weeks after she allegedly made a threat toward Bullitt Central High School, has been found not guilty.
Dusty Witherspoon was charged with terroristic threatening and criminal mischief following the October 3, 2018 incident.
School officials said she entered the school building that day and spoke with a school administrator.
After being told she was not to be on school grounds, police said Witherspoon left the building but came back inside through a different entrance. She eventually left school grounds on her own, but sent a text message to a another employee making threats toward the school.
The school went into a soft lockdown as a result of the incident.
Travis Lock, her attorney, and Witherspoon have maintained the text message was not threatening in nature.
