Local lawmaker reminding youths that threatening a school is a felony

A juvenile has been arrested for allegedly sending threatening emails to Danbury teachers.  Danbury Police were notified December 3rd that several Danbury High School teachers and students received emails indicating a bomb was in the high school. The Investigation determined that the threatening emails originated from within the School and were not credible. State Senator Tony Hwang, whose district includes Newtown, says threatening a school is a felony charge for anyone over 15 years old.  He says it's important to understand this is not a joking matter, and that it's a criminal act.  Hwang sponsored a law for stiffer penalties for threats against schools in 2016, though the law doesn't apply to juveniles. The state has seen a sweeping number of threats made at schools over the past few weeks, and all were deemed not credible.
