Edmonds Teens Plead Guilty in Racial Threats Case

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — Two Edmonds teens charged with making racially charged threats against students at their high school have been sentenced to eight days in juvenile detention.

The Daily Herald reports that the boys, both 16, were sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to felony malicious harassment. One of the boys has already served the eight-day sentence and the other will report to a juvenile facility next week.

Police had said the boys made death threats last year in a Facebook group against black students and against the entire student body at Edmonds-Woodway High School.

The teens had told police they wrote the messages but didn’t plan to carry out their threats.

The judge denied a request by their attorney for a deferred sentence, saying it “would not be justice.”
