An Eagle Mountain man accused of forcing his daughter's school to evacuate when he told officials he had explosives in his vehicle parked outside has been ordered to spend another two months behind bars, and then must complete a five year probation sentence. Christopher Craig, 35, has already spent over nine months in jail, but will remain there for another two months following a ruling issued Tuesday. Upon investigation authorities did not find any explosives in Craig's vehicle after he made the bomb threat. He pleaded in May to one second-degree felony of making a false alarm.
The judge agreed with attorney's from both sides of the case who argued that Craig's debilitating mental health problems were key factors motivating the incident. He must undergo mental health treatment while he completes his probation.
