The 14-year-old boy admitted to a felony charge of criminal threats in Butte County Juvenile Court Wednesday. District Attorney Mike Ramsey said the felony charge arose from threats the boy made on social media sites back in February. Authorities say the teen posted on those sites using a fake account with another student's name. The school which is at a temporary location in Chico was put on lockdown when they found out about the threat. Chico Police were able to trace the posts to the boy's computer I-P address and email.
According to the Butte County District Attorney's Office, the teen faces up to three years in juvenile custody.
