Diomedes, 19, of the 100 block of Caroline Court, will be sentenced by Hallock Aug. 8, according to court records.

The felony carries a prison term of one to three years, but probation and community service also are options.

Authorities said Diomedes sent an email April 26, 2011, to a third party in which he threatened to kill a dean at the high school.

The person called police and Diomedes was later arrested.

The email from Diomedes contained "a death threat, stating he wanted (the victim) to suffer and die," according to court documents.

A phone message left with Diomedes' defense attorney, Scott Sheen, was not immediately returned.

Sheen also plans to ask Hallock on Aug. 8 to reconsider the verdict, court records show.

Diomedes has been free on bond since his arrest and is prohibited from contacting the dean or entering the school, from which he has been expelled.
