Teen Charged In Fake Bomb Threat To Stand Trial

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The teenager accused of phoning in last week’s fake bomb threat to Penn Hills High School appeared in court today.

According to our news partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, District Judge Leonard Hromyak dropped a felony charge of causing a catastrophe. Instead, the charge was replaced with a misdemeanor of false alarm.

Andre Milligaen, 18, will now face a formal arraignment next month.

According to police, he claimed to have planted six pipe bombs around the school and was planning to shoot anyone who showed up there.

Classes were canceled at the high school and police arrested six students who were involved in a fight at the nearby Fralic Center.

Judge Hromyak also reduced Milligaen’s bail on the condition that he can only leave his home between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

He is expected to be released later today.

    EITHER THAT GUY IS HUGE OR THAT COP IS A MIDGET

    WHY ARE WE ALLOWING A FELONY TO BE DOWNGRADED TO A MISDEMEANOR?

    FURTHER PROOF THE JUDICIAL BRANCH IS FULL OF IT

    It is only after he carries on his treat that we are going to become serious about him or what? Why downgrading the penalty? huh?

    our laws have become a JOKE, no one is prosecuted UNLESS they do some
    trivial thing and the rascals know it!!! When will we get real?? $400,000 dollars stolen and they got 26 months, because they are a “good” person???????????

  5. Cookie says:

    And what about all the extra effort and money that was expended for this incident? Who pays the taxpayers back for that?

    1. Anyone says:

      No one pays the taxpayers back for any police/military actions. Consider it a “stay on the computer and make silly comments” tax.

  6. Terry Zimoski says:

    This is a felony and needs to be treated as such. This kid will again be in the news after he actually plans a terrorist plan and kills children. He has found how easy it is to get a redced sentence and can walk the same day. Shame on you lady liberty.

    1. Someone_Else_Entirely says:

      I’d say it is a bit rash to say something like that when the maximum punishment he could face with the felony is 20 years, especially based off of a 13 line article.

  7. Thomas J Duttine says:

    And we even get to pay for his lawyer!
