HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — A 17-year-old southern Ohio high school student has pleaded guilty to sending out tweets threatening that weapons and explosives would be used at school.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/RnaxRV ) reports that the Hamilton teen pleaded guilty Thursday to a reduced felony charge of attempted panic. He had been charged with felony counts of making a terroristic threat and inducing panic.
He was among three Edgewood High School students arrested for allegedly making threats of violence in late August. The other two students faced only menacing charges. None of the teens had access to weapons.
The boy remains at a county juvenile detention facility pending his sentencing hearing on Wednesday. Possible sentences range from probation to six months incarceration.
