Trial date set for 2 of 3 teens accused of emailing bomb threats to Orange High School

PEPPER PIKE, Ohio - A trial date has been set for two of three teens accused of emailing a series of bomb threats at Orange High School.

On Sept. 24, two juvenile suspects are set to go to trial for the allegations. The other suspect has a pretrial set for June 19 where his attorney said he's expected to plead.

At a Monday hearing, one attorney said there's "no proof my client was involved in the threats." Attorneys also claimed this was "the 2012 version of pulling a fire alarm in school."

In November, school officials canceled class 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.

If the trio are convicted, they could get anywhere from probation to one year in a detention facility.

The teen students have all been charged with felony counts of inducing panic, misdemeanor counts of telecommunications harassment and a possessing criminal tools charge.
