Harrison Student Changes Plea to "True"

Posted: Updated:

A 15-year-old Harrison School student, accused of bringing guns to school, changed his plea of "not true" to "true" in a Madison County courtroom Monday.

The student admitted to bringing two guns to school on January 25th of this year.

The 15-year-old said he carried two handguns into Harrison School; one was loaded while the other was not.

Principal and Superintendent Fred Hofman apprehended the male at the end of the school day after classes were done for the day and removed the weapons from the student's backpack.

Hofman said the boy has been cooperative throughout the entire process.

"I don't think at any time during this whole process he has denied what he did," Hofman said. "From the very moment that he first sat in my office with the backpack, until today, I don't think there has ever been a denial on his part other than the legal protection the judge entered initially to give them time to figure stuff out.

The student was put on probation as a result to his "true" plea.

He must spend six to nine months receiving treatment for his behavior.

Hofman said he expects the student to petition the Harrison School Board to be readmitted into school after completing his probation.
