Delegation Supports Bomb Threat Bill

January 19th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

At a Friday morning meeting, members of the District 1 legislative delegation met Friday and decided to back bills that would allow juveniles age 16 and over to be charged as adults for bomb threats. The Times News reports legislation to crack down on school bomb threats also got a unanimous thumbs-up from delegation members. The crackdown would add bomb threats to a list of crimes for which juveniles could be charged as adults. The delegation agreed to use the general term “bomb threats” rather than limit the bill to bomb threats aimed at educational institutions. The bill would limit adult charges to juveniles at least 16 years of age. There have been numerous bomb threats at local secondary schools in the past few months.
