For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Three students have been charged with making terroristic threats at Marshfield High School (MHS) on Dec. 17.
Bradley Hendrickson and Gage Plechaty, both 18, and a 17-year-old student appeared in Wood County Circuit Court on Dec. 26
Court records indicate that the 17-year-old told police that he found a threat on a bathroom stall at the high school that said a bomb would explode under the library. He later admitted to writing the bomb threat, adding that he had encouragement from Plechaty and Hendrickson.
On Dec. 17, just before 11 a.m., a MHS school resource officer was approached by the 17-year-old, who said he saw the threatening message which indicated a bomb would go off in the school at 1 p.m.
Investigators said that surveillance of the bathroom entrance shows Plechaty and Hendrickson entering and exiting twice between 10-11 a.m. and the 17-year-old entering and exiting a short time later.
Prosecutors said that the 17-year-old admitted to writing the threat the next day.
All three are free on $1,000 cash bonds.
No other court dates have been scheduled at this time.
If convicted, the three could face a maximum sentence of three and a half years in prison.
