Narrative

 

 

This press release is being generated for all school district administrators, principals, and other interested parties.  We have received phone calls regarding one of our former county jail inmates.  Specifically, Colton Syverson. 

 

Here is the update on this man:  He was released from our jail after serving his sentence on/about 8-13-13.  While he was in our facility, he did make alleged threats, including wanting to commit suicide at a school, and convincing the kids to commit suicide with him.

 

Those threats were assessed by professionals at Health and Human Services and were deemed not credible.

 

Since his release from our jail, we have not had ANY CONTACTS with him whatsoever.  He is not wanted at this time.
