Convicted Campbell County school shooter Kenneth Bartley Jr. was put behind bars again after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Bartley was booked into the Knox County Detention Facility and was arraigned on a misdemeanor offense for criminal trespassing. His bond was set at $1,500.

Bartley pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 30 days in jail, suspending all but the time he has currently served. The judge also ordered him to say away from the Salvation Army at 409 North Broadway he was caught trespassing at.

On Feb. 8, a warrant was put out for Bartley's arrest. At the time, officials said Bartley did not appear in court for criminal trespassing charges for "reasons beyond his control," and a judge issued a capias warrant for his arrest.
