Four students from Calhoun County schools face charges of threats of violence at the school.
The Calhoun County prosecutor said four students accused of uttering threats at schools would be charged. These students are from Lakeview High School, Lakeview Middle School, Endeavor Academy and Homer Schools, according to Calhoun County District Attorney Dave Gilbert.
The charges include misrepresenting a bomb threat, an act of terrorism or a threat to the community. The pupils concerned are 8 to 15 years old. The Calhoun County District Attorney’s Office is still deciding whether any of the students should be charged as an adult for the threats.
Meanwhile, two more cases are still under review and charges could follow.
The sentence can range from one year to twenty years, depending on the offense. Calhoun County District Attorney Gilbert said the punishment was different depending on the driving. He says a bomb threat is in relation to terrorist threats, and the actual acts and intentions as well as the ages of the students involved are all taken into account.
Many Michigan schools have faced various threats in the wake of the deadly Oxford High School shooting on November 30. Michigan prosecutors face issues similar to those in Calhoun County in the days following the deadly Oxford school shooting.
One of the consequences of what happened in Oxford is that threats of violence in schools cannot be dealt with with a simple slap on the wrist.
