Judge to rule on disposition of case involving school social media threats

A judge will rule on the final disposition of a case involving a 14-year-old Columbus North High School student accused of making threats on social media to other students that involved a weapon.

The hearing is set for 9:15 a.m. Feb. 27 at Bartholomew County Juvenile Court before Magistrate Heather Mollo, court officials said.

The juvenile admitted to Level 6 felony intimidation in January during a court hearing.

He is remaining on electronic monitoring pending the dispositional hearing, court officials said.

The case has been pending since last year when the juvenile was detained after the Nov. 9 incident. No weapon was located in the case.
