The former Williamsburg Academy student charged with Threatening an Act of Terrorism has been released on bond. On Monday, May 14, the 16-year-old appeared before a Williamsburg County Third Circuit Court judge where a $75,000 surety bond was set. The suspect will also be required to wear a monitoring device and live out of the county. The case was also remanded to family court. The suspect was initially to be tried as an adult.
On April 30, the student was taken into custody. Threatening an Act of Terrorism is a Class B felony, which carries a penalty of prison from 25 years to life.
The charge stems from alleged texts the suspect sent to another student alleging to do harm to other students. A May 21, court day was set.
