MORE: Judge resorts to polygraphs in school threat cases
On Tuesday, the boy was charged with inducing panic and making false alarms. In a Warren County Juvenile Court hearing, he denied the allegations, and Judge Joe Kirby ordered him to be held in the detention center, at least until he passed a polygraph.
On Wednesday, he passed the polygraph and was allowed to go home, pending a May 2 court date. The boy is required to attend school at the juvenile justice center, while the case is pending.
It was the latest of more than dozen school-threat cases filed in Warren County since the deadly shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in Parkland, Fla.
