Northside ISD officials released new information Thursday about a student accused of calling in a bomb threat against the middle school she attended.
NISD spokesman Pasqual Gonzales said the 12-year-old accused of phoning in a bomb threat at Dolpph Briscoe Middle School has a history of “disciplinary actions” with the staff and administrators at the school.
Gonzales said he received that information from the middle-school principal.
The 12-year-old suspect had her day in court Thursday, and 289th Dsitrict Court Judge Carmen Kelsey took disciplinary matters into her own hands.
"Your probation officer recommends detention," Kelsey said to the suspect in court. "They say that you are not allowing supervision to be provided by your parents and you could be a danger to others and or yourself. I'm going to follow that recommendation."
In the meantime, the suspect will be under close supervision until her next hearing in court, which is scheduled for Oct. 18.
School officials said the suspect admitted to phoning in the threat. She is facing federal charges.
