The 18-year-old student was charged with a third degree felony and two misdemeanors.

Guam – Another student who was arrested for foiled bomb threat at Southern High School could face up to 7 years in prison after he was charged with a third degree felony and two misdemeanors.

 

HerisJoe Stephen, 18, was arrested on Tuesday after he was caught by his teacher writing a bomb threat on a piece of paper.

According to a magistrate complaint, Stephen was dared by another student to write the bomb threat then leave it in the classroom when they get dismissed. Police say Stephen attempted to throw the note away when his teacher questioned him about it.

When police later interviewed Stephen, he admitted to writing the bomb threat note but that it was all just a joke.

Stephen was charged with attempted terroristic conduct as a third degree felony, conspiracy as a misdemeanor and hindering apprehension as a misdemeanor.

A third degree felony is punishable by up to five years in prison and a misdemeanor is punishable by up to one year in prison, which means Stephen, if found guilty, could face seven years in prison. 

Meanwhile, three other male minors were arrested today in connection to three separate bomb threats: one at Southern High School from January 21st; Another at Inarajan Middle School on January 27; and at Agueda Johnston Middle School from January 22nd.
