Maple Grove Man Pleads Guilty to Terroristic Threat Charge
Robert Christopher Baker was charged in February of making terroristic threats against Maple Grove Senior High and Osseo Senior High schools.
Robert Christopher Baker, 50, of Maple Grove was charged Feb. 28 with making terroristic threats, a felony, against two area high schools. At a hearing in Hennepin County Court April 24, Baker pleaded guilty to the charge.
Police say a Baker threatened to "blow up" Maple Grove Senior High and Osseo Senior High schools because he was "expressing his anger regarding being fired from the schools in January 2012," according to a criminal complaint filed Hennepin County Court.
Baker was a substitute teacher for the Osseo School District, "employed at will and not a teacher on contract" according to Osseo School District 279 School/Community Relations Director Barbara Olson said in March in an email to Patch. "As an at-will employee, he was called upon only as needed," she said.
Baker has been, and remains, out on bail since being charged, according to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.
The sentencing hearing is scheduled for Monday, June 18, 2012.
