Student Charged with Threatening Judges

By  | 

A student at an eastern Kentucky school for dropouts has been charged in a complaint with threatening to kill two federal judges and a federal prosecutor.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports a deputy U.S. marshal said in a sworn statement the student told a counselor he planned to shoot everyone involved in the prosecution of his father, who is serving prison time for possession of child pornography.

The student's age was unavailable, but court documents said he attended the Appalachian ChalleNGe Academy in Harlan County. The school is for 16- to 18-year-olds who have dropped out or are at risk of dropping out of school.

The student was charged Friday in a complaint in federal court. He has been hospitalized since December.
