Student Charged With Terror Costs City Money, Sheriff Says
Pinckney High School officials were made aware of a threat written in the boys' bathroom on a stall door May 22.
The words read "A Pinckney High Shooting 5-27-03."
Police and sheriff's deputies stood guard at the school Monday and Tuesday and searched students' backpacks. A letter was sent home to parents alerting them of the situation, Local 4 learned.
Investigators said student interviews led them to a 15-year-old boy who confessed. He said that students had been bullying him. The boy, who is a freshman at the school, also said he wrote the note to get attention.
If convicted, the boy could be sentenced to juvenile detention until he is 21 and pay thousands of dollars in reimbursement costs.
"We had 11 deputies assigned to one school. That is a lot of overtime," said Livingston County Undersheriff Bob Bezotte. A bomb-sniffing dog was also brought in to the school. Bezotte said the cost, billed to Pinckney Community Schools, amounted to about $2,500.
The boy's mother testified in court Wednesday that her son hadn't been in trouble before and that he was suffering psychological problems, which she said stemmed from his parent's divorce. She also told the court that the boy was undergoing psychiatric counseling, had spent time at a mental health facility, and was taking antidepressant medication.
He's in juvenile detention on a $50,000 bond waiting a court date.
