Gahanna Teen Admits Posting Threatening Videos
A former central Ohio high school student faces juvenile court sanctions after admitting that he posted online videos that classmates and parents found threatening.
The 17-year-old boy admitted to a misdemeanor delinquency charge of inducing panic in a Franklin County courtroom Monday. The former Gahanna-Lincoln High School student could be sent to a juvenile center for 90 days, but he is eligible for probation. He’ll be sentenced May 10.
The teen was arrested on Sept. 3 after police tracked several tweets and two YouTube videos to a computer in his home. They generated 200 calls to police from concerned parents and students.
Prosecutors said one of the videos included an ominous threat to classmates.
