BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – A Connecticut man won't serve prison time for making harassing calls to Newtown schools claiming the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School was fabricated.
Thirty-year-old Timothy Rogalski of Wallingford received a suspended sentence Friday in Bridgeport Superior Court and was ordered to have no further contact with the schools.
He was convicted of harassment and disorderly conduct after authorities traced the April phone calls to his home.
A gunman killed 20 children and six adults at the school on Dec. 14, 2012, before committing suicide.
Police say Rogalski told them he believes the Newtown shootings, the Boston Marathon bombings and the moon landing were all hoaxes.
Jared Millbrandt, Rogalski's public defender, tells the Hearst Connecticut Media Group (http://bit.ly/1Fa7tE4 ) that Rogalski is looking forward to moving on with his life.
