Jun 6, 2018

The Hutch Tech High School student facing a felony count of Making a Terroristic Threat was scheduled to appear, Wednesday, in Buffalo City Court. But Judge Amy Martoche granted a request for Youthful Offender Status for the 17-year-old male and decided to hold a pretrial conference in private to protect the student's identity. He was arraigned Saturday, after allegedly creating a fake Facebook account and posting a threat toward Hutch Tech which led to a lockdown at the school, Friday. According to Buffalo Police, the student confessed to making the threats. He was being held on $100,000 bail.
