Charges filed in LPHS 'death threat' list
By Ryan Gueningsman
The two female juveniles who wrote a "death list" letter at the Lester Prairie High School have been charged with misdemeanors by the McLeod County Attorney's office, said Lester Prairie Police Chief Bob Carlson.
Each girl has been charged with one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct, he said. If the two were adults, the maximum penalty they could face would be 90 days imprisonment and/or a $700 fine each.
Carlson requested that if the girls are convicted, that they be placed on probation and have their activities monitored.
"It's important to try to correct their behavior," he said. "I don't think it's necessary that they be placed in juvenile detention. Probation is necessary to monitor their behavior, and they may also face court-ordered counseling."
