Threats charges dismissed against one Orange High School teen

A judge dismissed charges Monday for one of the Orange High School students accused of sending threatening e-mails last November. The threats closed the school for three days.

The trial for a second teenager was continued. The third teenager pled guilty this past July to seven counts of inducing panic. He was placed on probation and must complete 150 hours of community service. He must also pay restitution.

The suspects are three boys, a 17-year-old and two 16-year-olds. All three were charged with a total of 17 felony counts  counts of inducing panic, two counts of telecommunication harassment and one count of possession of criminal tools.

Assistant Prosecutor Michael Horn says that the threats were untraceable and they were able to start investigating the teens because they had talked with other students about the threat.

A search warrant was served at one of the teen's residence. The Prosecutor's Office says that teen admitted to the crime and turned in the other two students.

None of the teens have prior convictions.
