Morris County NJ Terroristic Threats Lawyers

Morristown NJ Terroristic Threats AttorneysLaw enforcement officials looked into a threat against students at Morristown High School and determined that no one was at risk.

Someone reportedly used the Internet to post a threat on a social media account this weekend. As soon as Morristown High School officials became aware of the nonspecific threat, they contacted the Morris Township Police Department.

Detectives investigated the online threat and determined that it was just a prank.

The principal of the high school later posted a letter online for all parents in the Morris School District to read. The letter indicated that authorities believe the threatening words were not credible and that no one in the school district was at risk of injury. The Morristown High School principal also said that police identified a “person of interest.”

There has been no word about whether the suspect was placed under arrest by law enforcement. Depending on the facts of the case, he may be subject to very serious criminal charges for making terroristic threats.
