The attorney for a former University of Wyoming student accused of posting an anonymous Facebook threat against herself says the student intends to plead no contest.
Meghan Lanker-Simons is charged in Albany County Circuit Court with misdemeanor interfering with a peace officer. She has pleaded not guilty.
Defense attorney Vaughn Neubauer told Circuit Court Judge Randal Arp on Monday that Lanker-Simons intends to change her plea to no contest in an agreement with prosecutors in exchange for her paying a fine and receiving no jail time.
The Laramie Boomerang reports that Arp canceled Lanker-Simons' trial, which was scheduled for next week.
The charge against Lanker-Simons stems from a UW Police Department investigation earlier this year into a graphic, sexual comment against Lanker-Simons. Investigators say Lanker-Simons authored the post.
