A Farmington teen accused of threatening to shoot up his high school pleas to the lesser charge.
The 16 year old boy admits to a disorderly conduct threat charge in exchange for the prosecution dropping the 2 more serious terrorist threat charges.
The plea deal includes a psychology and drug and alcohol exam. Those results will be reviewed at a sentencing hearing scheduled for February 1st in Peoria County Juvenile Court.
The judge says the maximum negotiated penalty is 30 days in juvenile detention. The boy will remain in custody.
The student was arrested Monday by Farmington Police for making threats to "shoot up" Farmington High School while classes were in session.
In reviewing the facts in court, prosecutors said the boy felt he was being bullied and treated poorly by other students, since moving into the district not too long ago.
The boy allegedly told his girlfriend and another friend he was tired of the bad treatment and planned to go to the school and resolve the issue through violence.
Prosecutors say the his girlfriend and the other friend never took the threats as too seriously, They said he was "just mad" at people in the school.
The juvenile's public defender says the boy never showed anyone any weapons and says the student did not possess a gun.
