The former BGSU Firelands part-time professor who threatened an associate dean with a knife was found guilty today in Huron Municipal Court in connection with the crime.

Patrick R. Saunders, 62, of Norwalk, pleaded no contest to inducing panic, which was a reduced charge from aggravated menacing. He was sentenced to a 180-day jail term.

A second charge of carrying a concealed weapon was dismissed, according to the court.

The jail term was suspended on the condition he is law abiding for two years and stays away from the BGSU campus and its associate dean. He was also ordered to pay a $500 fine and go to anger management counseling.

Remember when the Beatles became popular around 1964? The boys in high school began to grow bangs. I heard that a principal in an area high school around that time took out his large folding knife, held it to the male student's face and threatened to cut his bangs off.  No charges against the principal.

Sally:  if you follow the logic, and with you it's hard to do, it seems that you think this guy should not have been charged for threatening someone with a knife?
