Teen sent to jail for making school threat


MARINETTE, Wis. (AP) -- A teenager who says he was constantly bullied has been sentenced to 90 days for making threats against Crivitz High School and a female student.

In sentencing 17-year-old Brett Bedora Thursday, Marinette County Judge David Miron said every school threat has to be taken seriously. Miron said in many of the school shootings throughout the country, people ask why anyone didn't recognize the warning signs. The judge praised the female student who alerted authorities that Bedora planned to bring a gun to school.

Police say several loaded weapons were found in Bedora's bedroom when they arrested him, as well as a notebook that contained information on making bombs and killing the school janitor.

The Marinette EageHerald says Bedora has been expelled from the high school and has been ordered not to possess any firearms.
