Kid pleads guilty in threat case

According to the Los Angeles Times, a 15-year-old accused of making threats against other kids at Wilson High School via Wikipedia, pleaded guilty Friday and was sentenced to probation. Here’s what the Times wrote:

A 15-year-old boy Friday admitted that he posted criminal threats on the website Wikipedia last month that targeted fellow students at Glen A. Wilson High School, officials said.

The teen admitted to six counts of making criminal threats, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. A seventh charge was dismissed, Robison said.

The teenager was charged in connection with the posting of two threatening messages on the Wikipedia entry for Wilson High on April 16 and 17. In the messages, he threatened to shoot six students and “a good majority” of the school badminton team.

The Hacienda La Puente Unified School District closed the school April 18 after the threats appeared, and the boy was arrested later that day.
