MILWAUKEE (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a 17-year-old boy in a bomb scare that led to cancellation of classes for one day at a Milwaukee area high school.
According to the criminal complaint filed Wednesday, a custodian found threatening words on the wall of a bathroom stall inside Franklin High School on March 29. The message also said "no school tomorrow."
The complaint alleges the Milwaukee youth joked to a friend about the scare. It says he admitted to detectives that he left the message as a prank, hoping it would result in classes being canceled the next day.
WTMJ-TV reports (http://bit.ly/HlZCn0) that if he's convicted, he faces as much as three years and six months in prison.
