Sentence: 5 years Probation
Tulsa, Ok – Okla. clinic director gets probation for bomb scare
TULSA, Okla. (AP) A federal judge has sentenced a former Reproductive Services of Tulsa executive director to five years of probation for falsely reporting a bomb threat at the clinic last year.
U.S. Chief District Judge Claire Eagan also on Friday ordered Linda Meek to pay $1,441 in restitution to the Tulsa Police Department for costs it incurred while responding to the bogus threat.
According to the Tulsa World, Meek pleaded guilty Oct. 7 to a federal count of intentionally providing false and misleading information that a bomb had been placed in a trash can at Reproductive Services, which provides abortions. Police evacuated the facility and a neighboring building Aug. 13, but a bomb technician found no explosive device.
Meek said what she did was "terribly wrong," and she's remorseful about what happened.
