Teens who allegedly made threats to schools released

Posted: Updated:

There's an update on the juveniles who were detained for allegedly making social media threats against area schools.

Nueces County juvenile court officials say most of those students are no longer in custody. They were arrested in late February, accused of making terroristic threats against schools  following the Florida high school shooting on Valentine's Day.  The teens are involved in separate cases.

The detained juveniles were from King High School, Driscoll Middle School, Hamlin Middle School, and Adkins Middle School.

The judge who saw them in February, told them that they would undergo a psych evaluation before releasing them to make sure they would not follow through with the threats.

If an adult or juvenile is caught making a terrorist threat, they will be arrested and be charged with a Class B misdemeanor. If convicted, they could face up to 180 days in jail and they or their parents could face a $2,000 fine.
