CELINA (CBSDFW.COM) – A man who claimed he had a gun and walked into an elementary school is not guilty of making terroristic threats. A Collin County jury acquitted Ronald Miller, 45, of the misdemeanor charge Wednesday afternoon.

Miller, whose son attends Celina Elementary School, says he was trying to make a point about lax school security when he told a volunteer he had a gun before walking into the school in January 2013, just weeks after the Newtown, Connecticut shootings.

Once inside the school, Miller went to the main office, and pointed at staffers telling them ‘you’re dead.’

Miller did not have a gun and no one was hurt during the incident. He said he was trying to prove how easy it would be for a gunman to gain access to the school. Police were called and Miller was charged with a misdemeanor. The charge carried a possible penalty of a year in jail.

Celina ISD Superintendent said in a statement, “The courts have spoken. We are law abiding citizens and we will abide by the courts verdict and that’s where we will leave It. We are going to do everything to make sure our kids are safe.”
