Alabama teen facing criminal charges after alleged threat

When individuals get upset, it is not unusual for them to act outside of their normal behavior. Some people may say things they do not really mean or carry out other actions that seem unlike themselves. Though many of these scenarios have little consequence, some parties could end up facing criminal charges if the wrong statement is made to the wrong people.

One teenager in Alabama is currently facing such a predicament. It was reported that the 19-year-old high school student had apparently become upset after getting into an argument with his girlfriend. His upset reportedly led to his making threats of harm to other students. The report stated that exact details on those threats and other aspects of the situation were not released due to the ongoing investigation.

It was unclear who reported the threats to authorities, but nonetheless, the teenager was taken into custody. He is currently facing charges for making a terroristic threat. He was booked into a county jail on a $10,000 bond. It was also reported that the Board of Education plans to have a disciplinary hearing in relation to the event.

Having criminal charges brought against someone at such a young age can have considerable consequences. The young man involved in this Alabama incident will certainly want to ensure that he understands his criminal options and his parents may also want to do their best to understand the predicament. Obtaining information from local legal resources could help them ensure that they receive applicable and reliable facts regarding his case.
