Girls sentenced in BLHS bomb scare

April 8, 2004

Two former Basehor-Linwood High School students who threatened in November that a bomb would go off at the school were sentenced Tuesday to one year of supervised probation.

According to Bill Winzenburg of the Leavenworth County attorney's office, the two girls -- who both are now 15 years old -- must fulfill these probation terms:

  • Pay $30 in court costs.
  • Pay $75 attorney fees.
  • Pay a $25 probation fee.
  • Attend the "Choices" program, which is a class on decision making and the consequences of making choices.
  • Apologize in person to the Basehor-Linwood High School principal.

One of the girls was ordered to continue to attend counseling. The other girl was ordered to attend school at the Leavenworth County Juvenile Detention Center at the first available space opening if she was not enrolled in an approved educational program and to attend summer school.

The two girls had pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, after originally being charged with aggravated criminal threat.
