DENVER (AP) -- A suburban Denver man accused of threatening to kill schoolchildren and the president is scheduled to change his not guilty plea Wednesday.

Mitchell Kenneth Kusick of Westminster has been held since last year on a federal charge of threats against a president. He was at one time a student at Colorado Mesa University.

According to court records, Kusick told his therapist about wanting to shoot students at a trick-or-treat event at a nearby high school. He also talked about killing President Barack Obama

Kusick took a shotgun from his aunt's house, tried to buy ammunition, then told his therapist about his plan. The therapist called police.


Update: Kusick changed his plea from "not guilty" to "guilty" on Wednesday.

He's been sentenced to time served plus three years of probation, and still faces charges in Jefferson County relating to the alleged threats to students at the trick-or-treat event at Standley Lake High School
