St. Paul woman: No extra jail time for threatening teacher

  • Updated: December 1, 2011 - 8:47 PM

A St. Paul woman who threatened to shoot a teacher who tried to break up a fight between her daughter and another girl was spared additional jail time when she was sentenced Thursday in Ramsey County District Court.

Christina M. Parks, 29, was sentenced to three days in jail -- time that she already had served -- as part of a sentence that also will require her to complete one year of probation and 40 hours of community work service.

She had been convicted of terroristic threats in connection with an incident outside Washington Technology Magnet School, 1495 Rice St., on the afternoon of May 2.

According to the charges, Parks pounded on the back of the teacher after he intervened in the fight and tried to prevent Parks' daughter from getting up after she fell.

A second teacher pulled Parks away, and the mother and daughter got into a truck, as if to leave. But Parks stepped back out, the charges say, and she yelled, "I'm going to come back and shoot you and you and the whole school."

She denied making the threat.
