BOLIVAR, MO (KCTV/AP) -
A southwest Missouri man accused of planning shooting attacks at a movie theater and a Walmart in 2012 has been sentenced to two 15-year concurrent prison sentences.
Blaec Lammers, 21, was sentenced Thursday to 15 years on each charge, with the terms to run concurrently.
He pleaded guilty in late January to charges of first-degree assault and armed criminal action.
He was accused of planning to shoot people at a Walmart store in Bolivar, MO, but his mother said there has to be a different answer when she emotionally spoke to reporters.
"And yes he had psych eval in St. Joe and yes he has a personality disorder so does that justify that we send him to prison because he's a little bit different? I don't think it means that we send him away because he's different, I think we find him help," Tricia Lammers said.
Tricia Lammers said her son suffers from depression, anti-social disorder and borderline personality disorder.
