Probation in School Threat Case

KSAL StaffDecember 16, 2015

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) – One of five teenagers accused of conspiring to carry out a shooting at Hutchinson High School has been sentenced to five months of probation.

The 17-year-old boy was sentenced Tuesday in juvenile court after pleading no contest to a single count of criminal threat. Under a plea agreement, prosecutors dismissed a solicitation to commit first-degree murder charge. The teen also was ordered to write a letter of apology to the school.

Police arrested five teens in April after they were alerted to postings on Facebook that threatened a mass shooting on the last day of school.

District Judge Patricia Macke Dick ordered the five teens to be released from custody this summer. The other four teens are scheduled for plea hearings on Dec. 29 in juvenile court.
