He pleaded guilty to one count of making a criminal threat.Matlak will be placed on five years probation and sentenced to a year in custody, which he will be able to serve at the treatment facility. Shamoon told Matlak to become stable on his medications before he is sentenced. Shamoon told Matlak that everyone is worried about him. “Nobody wins if you go to prison,” Shamoon said. Shamoon allowed Matlak’s mother to give him a hug after the plea. Classmates of Matlak who graduated in 2015 reported the threats to law enforcement on May 30, leading to his arrest.Matlak bailed out of jail and voluntarily checked himself in to a lockdown mental health facility, defense attorney Brian Watkins said. Watkins said Matlak didn’t threaten anyone directly, but three former classmates read his posts on Instagram and felt threatened by them.“I hate all of you,” Matlak wrote in one post, according to Deputy District Attorney Matthew Greco. “Get the (expletive) out of San Diego 2K18 before I find u,” Matlak wrote in another post. He also posted a photo of an AR-15 rifle, Greco said.RELATED STORY: Man accused or threatening Torrey Pines HS to remain in hospital Former Torrey Pines High student pleads guilty to making threats Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Gregory Matlak, Torrey Pines HS KUSI Newsroom FacebookTwitter July 11, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, Posted: July 11, 2018 Updated: 7:37 AMlast_img
