A New York Mills student is facing charges in connection to a reported threat from last week, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

Last Thursday, the Sheriff’s Office said they were conducting an investigation at New York Mills High School regarding what appeared to be a non-credible threat made by a student. Deputies said at that time there was no immediate threat to any of the students or the general public, and they were in the process of interviewing a “juvenile of interest.”

Now, deputies say a minor has been charged with misdemeanor third-degree falsely reporting an incident and the violation of disorderly conduct. Because of the minor’s age, no further information will be released.

New York Mills Union Free School District Superintendent Joanne Shelmidine sent a notice to parents on Monday informing them that a student had been charged. A portion of the notice stated:

“The NY Mills Union Free School District is continuing to work with the Sheriff’s Department and has cooperated fully with the investigation; the District is also following our Student Code of Conduct as it relates to the student involved. The safety of the students and staff remains a top priority of this district. We continue to encourage our students to report any incident that concerns them so that it can be addressed as quickly as possible.”

Deputies say the minor is scheduled to appear before Oneida County Juvenile Probation at a later date.
