Teen facing intimidation charges for Mishawaka school threat pleads guilty

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- The 17-year-old who was accused of threatening to carry out a shooting at Mishawaka High School has pleaded guilty to one count of intimidation, according to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office.

The teen, who ABC57 is not identifying, was facing a delinquency petition for two counts of intimidation, which would be level 6 felonies if committed by an adult.

The first count for intimidation alleges on December 20 the teen threatened to fire shots at Mishawaka High School and/or shoot an administrator.

The second count of intimidation alleges the shooting threat was in retaliation for the administrator taking disciplinary action against the teen.

During an initial hearing on Wednesday, the teen pleaded guilty to one count of intimidation. The other count was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
