3 more Warren County schoolchildren to take polygraphs in threat cases

The students ranging in age from 12 to 15 years old are among seven charged in connection with alleged school threats made in the days following the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla., on Feb. 14.

Hearings scheduled for a 12-year-old boy and 15-year-old girl on Wednesday in Warren County Juvenile Court to determine whether they should remain in detention were delayed so they could undergo polygraph tests.

Judge Joe Kirby is urging juveniles charged in connection with alleged school threats made in the days following the shootings at Marjory Stoneham Douglas High School to take and pass polygraphs before he will release them, while their charges are pending.

The dates and times of their hearings were unavailable this morning.

On Tuesday, two other students in school threat cases were released to their parents after passing polygraphs.
