Student's $500K bond won't be reduced

Lambert appears in court Friday 12/18/09. Lambert appears in court Friday 12/18/09.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A lawyer for a man whose Facebook posting led to a shutdown at Faulkner University says his client meant no harm and that his $500,000 bond on a charge of making a terrorist threat should be reduced.

Faulkner security initiated a 45-minute lockdown in response to the message on Dec. 3.

Attorney Bill Blanchard says the posting said, in part, "Look out, Cho's record," apparently referring to Seung-Hui Cho, who killed 32 people at Virginia Tech in 2007.

Blanchard said the 22-year-old Lambert had neither the intention nor the means to carry out what was stated.

Deputy District Attorney John Kachelman said he would argue to keep the high bond, based on the seriousness of the message and the danger Lambert could pose.
