HAMILTON, Ohio -- One of the New Miami High School students accused of making threats on Facebook was arraigned Friday.
The two St. Clair Township teen girls -- one age 14 and the other 15 -- were arrested Oct. 28 after a teacher alerted school administrators of their social media conversation that authorities called “terroristic.”
Two hearings on the case were held Friday in Butler County Court. One revolved around a request to bar the media from court proceedings. The judge ruled that media coverage could be allowed.
In the other, one teen was arraigned and the judge ordered that both remain in detention until their next hearing on Dec. 3.
One of the girls’ attorneys tried to secure their release during Friday’s hearing.
An attorney for one of the girls told 9 On Your Side’s Jay Warren that once the evidence is shown this case will not be as serious as it currently appears to be.
"We would ask that she be released. Her family wants her home, she would like to go home,” defense attorney Dawn Garrett asked the judge.
Both teens will have to undergo psych evaluations.
Authorities found no weapons when the girls were arrested. They were charged as juveniles with delinquency by reason of inducing panic, as well as delinquency by reason of making terroristic threats.
