SEC­OND TEEN IN SHOOT­ING PLOT IS SENT TO DE­TEN­TION

The Denver Post - - NEWS -

A judge Fri­day morn­ing ac­cepted a plea agree­ment that will see the sec­ond teen in­volved in the Moun­tain Vista High School shoot­ing plot in­car­cer­ated in a ju­ve­nile de­ten­tion fa­cil­ity for five years.

Si­enna John­son in June pleaded guilty to a ju­ve­nile count of con­spir­acy to com­mit mur­der and an adult count of felony men­ac­ing.

She will serve five years in the Di­vi­sion of Youth Corrections on the con­spir­acy charge and will not get credit for any time she has al­ready served since her ar­rest.

On the men­ac­ing charge, the two sides agreed that John­son will serve four years of pro­ba­tion upon her com­ple­tion of her youth corrections sen­tence.

Although the con­spir­acy to com­mit mur­der charge is the same that John­son’s ac­com­plice, Brooke Hig­gins, pleaded guilty to last year and was sen­tenced for in Fe­bru­ary, John­son agreed to a longer sen­tence than Hig­gins.

Hig­gins’ sen­tence car­ries dif­fer­ent pa­ram­e­ters.

Hig­gins was sen­tenced to three years in youth corrections but re­ceived credit for 409 days served. She was also as­signed four years of pro­ba­tion and men­tal health treat­ment upon her re­lease, as was John­son. — Den­ver7
