Rossford student guilty of posting school threats


BOWLING GREEN A Rossford High student who posted threats against his school on the Internet pleaded guilty yesterday to a reduced charge of delinquency in connection with inducing panic.

The 16-year-old boy, who initially was charged with making a terrorist threat and menacing, is to be sentenced April 3 by Wood County Juvenile Court Judge David Woessner.

Judge Woessner said the teenager could be committed to the Ohio Department of Youth Services for as little as six months or as long as his 21st birthday.

The teenager, along with Christopher Arrington, 18, of Perrysburg, were arrested by Rossford police in January after they were accused of posting threats on the MySpace Web site.

Mr. Arrington s case is pending in Wood County Common Pleas Court.
