Teen admits to writing threatening graffiti at LCCVI


A teen from Plympton-Wyoming won’t have a criminal record in the wake of threats which closed LCCVI for a day in June.

On June 2, Lambton-Kent District School Board officials called in the OPP after threatening graffiti was found in a bathroom which was under renovation.
Students were kept in the classrooms and bathrooms were off limits while officers investigated. And after consulting with police, the board closed the school building Friday concerned about the threats.

Five days later OPP arrested a teen who was charged with uttering threats and mischief.

Friday, the teen appeared in Sarnia Court and plead guilty to the single count.
He was given a judicial reprimand, according to the Crown Attorney’s office. It’s an option under the Youth Criminal Justice act which allows a judge to give “a stern lecture” in a minor case to hold the youth accountable for their actions.
