Charges Filed In Three Forks School Threats

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN - Editor’s Note: As an ethical rule, news media rarely reports the name of juvenile offenders, especially those who are not convicted of a crime. For this reason and based on the situation, ABC Fox Montana will not name the suspect.

A Broadwater County teenager, accused of threatening students at Three Forks High School, is in custody and facing charges for those threats.

The 16-year-old appeared in Gallatin County Youth Court via teleconference from the Juvenile Detention Facility in Galen, Montana on Thursday.

The teenager is charged with felony intimidation, misdemeanor stalking and violating privacy in communications.

Court documents stated that the suspect texted a couple students at Three Forks High School at least 20 times on March 10 starting just after 6 p.m.

The Gallatin County Sheriff's Department said the students didn't know the number, because it was coming from a text messaging app.

The documents said texts sent to a male student included vulgar sexual and violent language, even threatening the student, stating "maybe I’ll stab you tomorrow."

 Paperwork went on to say that messages sent to a girl at the school the same day threatened to rape her the next day.

On March 28, the sheriff's department said the defendant claimed his Facebook page had been hacked and threats were posted, this time, to the defendant’s home.

Court documents said the juvenile sent another text on Monday night threatening to kill the student and bomb and shoot the school.

The suspect is being held on $25,000 bail at the Juvenile Detention Facility in Galen.
