MACON — An eastern Missouri teenager gets a five-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty to making a bomb threat at a school.

Eighteen-year-old Jackie Royer of Macon was sentenced Tuesday. He was also placed on probation for five years.

Police were called to Macon Vocational School on Sept. 11, 2008, after receiving a report of a bomb threat written on a school wall. The building was evacuated and students were taken to churches during the search. No bomb was found.

As part of his sentence, Royer must write a letter of apology to all teachers and administrators in the Macon School District, and he must make an oral apology to the school board.
