A former school secretary in Pratt has been indicted on federal firearms charges.
33-year-old Claudia Rodriguez-Oviedo, who is a Mexican citizen, is already serving time for making a fake bomb threat to Pratt schools. She admitted sending a bomb threat to the school district in early November, using a fake email account. The threat forced the closing of Pratt schools for two days.
Rodriguez-Oviedo is now charged in federal court with two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm by an alien illegally in the United States. Prosecutors said she possessed a Remington handgun and 35 rounds of ammunition in early November. If convicted, she faces up to ten years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000 on each count.
