A Morris Plains man accused of threatening the superintendent and athletic director of Wallkill Valley Regional High School has been accepted into the state's pre-trial intervention program. According to the New Jersey Herald, once Emmet Weinman completes the program in one to three years, his charges will be dismissed.
The 19-year-old allegedly left an explicit voicemail for Athletic Director Daryl Jones in which he threatened both Jones and Superintendent David Carr. The voicemail reportedly referenced an incident at a February 19 Wallkill Valley basketball game against Lenape Valley where a Lenape Valley basketball player was allegedly the subject of racial slurs from the crowd.
Weinman allegedly accused Jones and Carr of "having the audacity to put racists kids on your basketball program" and threatened to "whip the (expletive) crap out of both of you." According to the New Jersey Herald, he also stated that he is "white" and they were "lucky" he doesn't shoot them.
In addition to completing the pre-trial intervention program, Weinman will be required to complete 40 hours of community service, and can not have contact with Jones or Carr or visit WVRHS.
