A juvenile boy who pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for threatening to shoot people at Farmington High School, says he never intended to carry out the threat.
The boy told his girlfriend and another friend he was frustrated with being picked on and bullied and was going to shoot students at the high school.
A prosecutor read from a statement the teen gave police at a Juvenile Court hearing Friday. In it, he said the threats were a "dumb idea" and that he didn't plan to carry them out.
Prosecutors did say he gave the friends details how he planned to do the shootings. And, prosecutors say that he had studied another mass school shooting. The boy's attorney said students interviewed by police didn't believe the teen was serious.
But, according to reports, his friends think he was "just mad" and it was all talk.
The boy's public defender says he never brough a gun to school and neever di possess one. But, it was reported the student's father owns a firearm.
The teen faces probation when he sentenced February 1st. The judge also ordered a psychologial and drug and alcohol evaluation
