A trial date is set for a student from the university’s adult education program charged with a felony, according to court records.
David Moxley, 44, of Oklahoma City is charged with telephoning a bomb threat and making obscene, threatening, or harassing telephonic or electronic communication, according to an Oklahoma County court affidavit.
Moxley’s trial is scheduled May 20, 2013.
According to the affidavit:
The counts stem from 13 calls made in November 2011 to Fairview Baptist Church, 1230 N. Sooner Road. Messages left on the church’s voicemail began at 4:12 a.m. Nov. 16, 2011 and ended at 10:10 a.m. Nov. 17, 2011.
During the calls, a man who identified himself as “Dave” threatened the church and its pastor, the pastor’s residence and the church’s staff.
“I have committed homicide more than one time and in more than one state and yet have not been caught, nor charged,” the caller said in the first message.
In a later message, the caller said, “A (inaudible) has been placed on your property in the building [sic], as well as some visitors will be visiting Pastor Blair at his residence. This is just to let you know. Thank you. Detonate it. Detonate it.”
The caller also left a phone number, which police traced back to Moxley, according to an Edmond police report.
Moxley, who does not have a previous criminal record in Oklahoma, appeared in court Dec. 7, 2011, and entered a plea of not guilty, according to court records.
Moxley plans to continue his education at the university, said Brian Dell, his attorney.
Dell declined to comment further on the case.
A student in violation of any federal, state or local law is subject to disciplinary sanctions by the university, according to the student code of conduct.
Editor’s Note: Liz Donnelly, dean of students, discussed violations of the student code of conduct in a general manner. No part of her quotes address David Moxley’s case.
The action officials would take would depend on the circumstances, said Liz Donnelly, dean of students.
“It’s at the dean of students’s discretion whether it would be considered a student code violation,” she said. “There’s not a one-size-fits-all answer.”
