Forty-six-year-old Susan Romanyszyn was sentenced Thursday to two years' home arrest and 20 years' probation. She has cancer, and the judge who sentenced her says that if her health improves she will be moved to jail.

Romanyszyn was convicted in June of 11 counts of making terroristic threats. Authorities say she orchestrated a campaign of fear at Longstreth Elementary School last year because she was angry over a classroom assignment.

She denies making the threats and says she was framed.
