A New York mom accused of threatening to bomb her daughter’s high school after the girl failed a state exam says she “never made such a phone call.”

Karen Shearon, 48, pleaded not guilty to a charge of aggravated harassment, the Staten Island Advance reports.

School officials allege that Shearon, upon learning the news about her daughter’s test results on Tuesday, told a guidance counselor at Susan Wagner High School in Staten Island that she was “going to blow up the school,” according to CBS New York. She was arrested on Thursday.

Shearon, who has two children that attend the school, claims that not only did she never make a threat, but that school officials “harassed” her children and showed up at her home at 8 p.m. to confront her about the alleged threat.

The mother sobbed through her arraignment on Friday, the New York Post reports.
