A former teacher who also ran twice unsuccessfully for the N.C. House was found guilty of telling two school employees over the phone that she was going to shoot people at the school administrative office, leading to a brief lockdown in March.

Forsyth District Judge Laurie Hutchins found Cristina Vazquez, 55, guilty of two counts of communicating threats after a brief trial Friday morning. The charge of communicating threats is a Class 1 misdemeanor and Vazquez has no previous criminal record. Because of that, Hutchins could not give Vazquez an active jail sentence.
