Teen sentenced following series of bomb threats at Orange High School last fall

CLEVELAND - One of three juvenile boys charged last fall after a series of bomb threats at Orange High School appeared in Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court Monday morning.

The 17-year-old was sentenced to probation and 150 hours of community service.

He must also testify against the other two boys and pay restitution.

The teen earlier pleaded guilty to charges of inducing panic and possession of criminal tools.

If the boy violates his probation or fails to complete the community service, he will be sent to juvenile detention until his 21st birthday.

The two other suspects, both 16 year olds, are set to stand trial on Sept. 24.

In November, school officials canceled classes several times because of the sophisticated email bomb threats. The teens allegedly sent emails to a site that made them untraceable, but a search at one of their homes turned up evidence in early December.
