Dr. John Peter Serra pleaded guilty October 18 to attempted making of criminal threats, according to the district attorney's office. He was tried in Superior Court by judge Polly Shamoon.
According to a document attached to Serra's biography with the Medical Board of California, Serra must give up teaching and the practice of medicine, per court instructions.
At the time of the crime, Serra was clinical instructor of emergency medicine at University of San Diego Health.
"Dr. Serra is no longer affiliated with University of California Health," says Scott Lafee, public relations practitioner with the University of California Health. "We can offer no more comment."
Further case information has not yet been imaged. Serra's attorney, Michael Berg, initially said he would help fill in details, but then did not respond to numerous calls.
