ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) – A 19-year-old New Site man’s trial on federal charges he made threats over social media has been rescheduled for Oct. 7 in Aberdeen.

Robert Scott Goodin pleaded not guilty in March to charges of interstate communication of threats to the George E. Allen Library in Booneville.

The Daily Corinthian reports (http://bit.ly/1b0S7Pu) that the new trial date was set this week. Goodin’s attorney had sought more time to prepare for trial.

The criminal complaint says Goodin told a library worker about “thoughts of killing people in the library” while he was there. Court papers say Goodin told federal investigators a demon inside him was encouraging him to commit the act.

If convicted, Goodin faces up to five years in prison and three years’ probation.
