The Legal Ramifications of a Bomb Threat

The Legal Ramifications of a Bomb Threat | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Threats at work or school cause real panic -- hoax or not. As a result, perpetrators can face real legal consequences.

 

Criminal charges or not, any student playing such a prank will end up with a permanently tarnished academic record. And youngsters aren’t exempt: kids under 18 can still be tried as an adult in most states, depending on the seriousness of the crime and the judge’s discretion. Youngsters playing pranks could face juvenile detention or other penalties. Parents should make children aware of the ramifications of such pranks or actual threats.

Sharrock's insight:

We should explore ways to instruct students regarding the consequences of hoaxes and pranks. Students often have few experiences interacting with local or federal law enforcement, so may not have a clear sense of the seriousness of some of their actions. Apparently, some adults do not have this clear sense as well. 


Excerpt: 

In some states, a conviction under a state or federal charge for making a school bomb threat can also:

Get a student’s drivers license or learner’s permit revoked,Make parents liable for their child’s actions in civil court, andResult in an automatic suspension from public school.
