CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A former Kent State University professor pleaded guilty in Federal Court Thursday for lying to the FBI.
Julio Pino, 57, was arrested in January 2016 for making threatening communications against a St. Louis judge.
Pino had been putting up threats on Facebook regarding a child custody case involving one of his Facebook friends.
During his interviews with the FBI, Pino denied knowing the friend.
Pino will be sentenced on Aug. 23.
University officials also say they continue to cooperate with the Department of Justice.
The Executive Director of University Media Relations with KSU Eric Mansfield said Pino will be fired.
He is not allowed on any Kent State campus.
