TALLADEGA COUNTY -- A Sylacauga woman was sentenced to 15 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to two counts of making terroristic threats.

Tiffany Alicia Pate, 45, pleaded guilty to the charges before Talladega County Circuit Judge Julian King. According to Chief Assistant District Attorney Christina Kilgore, Pate had six previous felony convictions before her recent plea.

Pate was accused of creating a phony Facebook account in the name of a man that she had previously been in a relationship with, then using that page to post violent, racist threats against students at B.B. Comer and Sylacauga high schools. One of the fake posts said the poster was “gonna’ slece and dice some peaple then gonna shoot all the n----rs at bbcomer and syl high. Want to help.”

Emergency protocols went into effect at both schools based on the posts.

After the threatening posts had been seen, Talladega County Central Dispatch also received a call reporting an active shooter at Comer. The call was also false.
