Trial set for February in school bomb threat

January 7, 2004

A trial has been scheduled for two teens who are charged in connection with a bomb threat in November at Basehor-Linwood High School.

The two girls -- a 14-year-old freshman and a 15-year-old sophomore -- will stand trial at 2 p.m. Feb. 24 on charges of aggravated criminal threat. The trial date was set at the girls' first court appearance on Dec. 30, during which they pled not guilty.

On Nov. 11, a hand-written note was discovered that said the high school building would blow up that afternoon. Students and staff were evacuated from the building after the threat, which proved to be unfounded.

Following a school district disciplinary hearing, both of the girls were suspended from school for a full year, which means they would not be eligible for reinstatement until November 2004.
