Judge dismisses charges against former student who made threats
WAUKESHA - A former Mukwonago High School student who allegedly threatened to shoot popular kids got his felony charge of making terrorist threats dismissed Friday, but the state is expected to refile charges in the near future.
Waukesha County Circuit Judge Ralph M. Ramirez ruled the state’s criminal complaint against Jared Roberts, 18, was “defective” in regard to the one count of terrorist threats while also lacking probable cause for the misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge that also was leveled against him.
Assistant District Attorney Kristina Gordon said in court that the state could potentially refile charges.
Roberts, of North Prairie, was charged last spring after several of his peers told police he claimed to be planning a shooting at Mukwonago High on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre.
