A 10-year-old South Lebanon boy was ordered to continue mental health treatment and barred from handling weapons, including on family hunting trips, for inducing panic at his elementary school on March 8.
The boy is one of several Warren County schoolchildren charged with making threats against their schools or classmates in the days following the fatal shooting on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
It was the second case involving a 10-year-old and the 10th threat case filed in Warren County since the deadly shooting at the Florida school.
He was alleged to have threatened to bring a gun to school to kill a third grader for sitting with fourth graders on the bus, listing five students as his “kill list” and threatening to kill all but two students in his classroom on March 8.
This morning, he was sentenced during a hearing Warren County Juvenile Court.
Judge Joe Kirby also placed the boy on probation and ordered him or his parents to pay $65 in court costs.
