The woman who brought a gun to a school board meeting to prove a point about school safety is not going to jail.
Tina Thompson brought the gun to a Fairview Board of Education meeting back in April. The .38 caliber revolver was not loaded.
In court Wednesday, she pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm on school grounds. Thompson could have received 5 years in prison, instead she received a five-year diversion as part of the plea deal.
Under the terms of the deal, Thompson is also barred from going on school grounds and having any contact with school officials or board members for five years. She is also banned from owning a gun.
During the gearing Thompson apologized for her actions.
