Everett Teen Arrested for Planning School Shooting

by Lewis & Laws

Everett Teen Arrested for Planning School Shooting

Just prior to the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, an Everett teen was arrested after his grandmother found evidence detailing his school shooting plans. On February 12, 2018, the grandmother of an ACES High School student called the police after reading the teen’s journal. In the journal, the teenager noted that he couldn’t “wait to walk into class and blow all those (expletives) away.” He also noted in his journal that he had learned from other mass school shootings and wanted to make the body count as high as possible.

Sadly, many of the victims of gun violence in our schools and across the nation are children under the age of 19. In fact, on average more than 17,000 American children and teens are shot in America each and every single year. Shockingly, nearly 1.7 million children live in a home with an unlocked and loaded gun and 1 out of 3 homes with kids have guns.

What to do if your child is arrested for a gun crime

If your child is arrested and charged with a gun crime, it is important to stay calm and take action immediately. These are serious charges and if your child is convicted, they could spend considerable time in prison as a result of their crime. An experienced criminal defense attorney is absolutely necessary to ensure that your child’s rights and future are protected throughout the legal process.

It is also important to know that even making threats of violence could land your child into serious trouble. While some online threats or disturbing language may not be considered criminal, but rather a protected version of free speech, others are considered serious criminal threats and constitute a crime. As such, it is important to have an experienced and skilled criminal defense lawyer on your child’s side from the very beginning.
