Zachary Pilon, the teen who pleaded guilty in January to uttering threats on social media against students at Collège Notre-Dame in 2019, will return to court Sept. 2 to set a date for sentencing.

Pilon was on the court docket for June 24, however, his matter did not proceed as planned, and has been adjourned.

Pilon, 19, sent the high school into lockdown on March 20, 2019, after he posted his plans to commit violence against 40 people at the local high school. An Instagram post he made warned that, on “Friday March 22nd, everyone will finally know my name... Look out CND.”

He was arrested later that day, and was released on bail on March 21 under a strict set of conditions. He was charged with criminal harassment and uttering threats.

A pre-sentence report was ordered when he pleaded guilty.
