Former OSU Student Sentenced for Campus Shooting Threats

Christopher Adam Strahan tweeted threats of a mass shooting at OSU last year, and has now been sentenced to a year in prison, and three years probation.

Strahan, age 33, had been in custody since the incident last February, so the time is already served. A statement from the U.S. attorney’s office, says, ” As a condition of Strahan’s supervised release, he is prohibited from contacting or entering the property of Oregon State University or the Linn Benton Community College.”

The former OSU student was civilly committed to a mental health facility for six months of the last year.

Federal Prosecutor Amy Potter told the court that she hoped Strahan’s year in custody would deter him from making future threats, and recommended that his supervision include mental health treatment. Strahan’s attorney,, Robert M. Schrank, told the court his client, “accepts full responsibility for his actions and deeply regrets them.’’
