OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to dismiss charges against A New Site man accused of making threats about harming people at a local library.

Robert Scott Goodin, 19, is accused of making threats over a social media website about the George E. Allen Library in Booneville.

The criminal complaint says Goodin told a library worker about "thoughts of killing people in the library" while he was there.

In the request to dismiss the case without prejudice, Goodin would be ordered to undergo psychological counseling prescribed by the U. S. Probation Service.

He would also be required to live with his parents, continue and seek to continue his education, stay away from the library and not own a firearm or other weapon.

Goodin would also be required to remain in North Mississippi and stay away from drugs and alcohol.

He was released from jail on a $10,000 bond.

The request by federal prosecutors does leave them the right to reopen the indictment later if Goodin fails to follow the terms of the agreement.

The agreement still needs approval of a federal judge.
