Teenager Held in Connection With Bomb Threat at Lewiston Junior High 

Jenifer Junior High School. - LEWISTON SCHOOL DISTRICT

A north central Idaho junior high school student is being held at a juvenile detention center and faces a possible felony charge in connection with a September 26 bomb threat.  

The Lewiston Tribune reports that the female student was taken into custody after a note was discovered on a girls' bathroom wall, prompting an evacuation of the school. Officials said the girl's consequences will likely start with suspension and a hearing from the Lewiston School Board on whether or not she would be expelled.

A spokeswoman for the Lewiston Police Department told the Tribune that the girl could also face a possible felony charge of providing false information about an explosive device in a public space. For now, she's locked up at the Region II Juvenile Detention Center in Lewiston, pending a court hearing.
