Kirby rejected the suggestion of the boy’s lawyer, John Smith, that he be sent home and kept under constant parental supervision.
In the previous school threat case, last October, the boy sent a Snapchat, showing him holding a firearm, to friend at lunch at Springboro Junior High School. A caption said, “Should I bring this to school?”
The boy admitted to sending the messages but “stated that he meant it as a joke and would never bring a gun to school,” records show.
On Dec. 3, the making false alarms charge was amended to attempting to make false alarms, and he was released from house arrest on probation and ordered to do 25 hours of community service.
He is scheduled to return to court at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 9.
