OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- Prosecutors and the defense are requesting a mental examination for a man facing federal charges of making threats against a school.
The paperwork was filed in the case of Jason Brandon Pillault, 19, of Oxford.
In the federal indictment, Pillault is accused of make the threats while playing the online game "Runescape".
The documents say he made references to an attack on Oxford High School, where he is a former student.
The prosecution filed a motion on Wednesday asking the judge to order the Bureau of Prisons to conduct a mental examination for Pillault.
They claim Pillault made statements to agents he "sympathizes with shooters who conducted the Columbine massacre".
The motion says they need to determine if he is capable of understanding the nature and consequences of the proceedings against him.
On Friday, Pillault's attorney filed a response to the motion agreeing with the motion, but asking for the examination to take place locally.
The response says moving Pillault from Oxford to a Bureau of Prisons facility to undergo the evaluation could take months and deny him his right to a speedy trial.
