NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Attorneys for three Louisiana high school students accused of plotting a shooting rampage on the opening day of school objected unsuccessfully to $500,000 cash bonds set by a judge.
The Times-Picayune reported Thursday that it obtained a transcript of a Monday hearing under state law providing access to juvenile court proceedings in certain serious cases.
Family Court Judge Mary Devereux set the bonds.
Investigators allege the three 15-year-old boys planned to kill a student and a teacher at Lakeshore High School and any police that responded before killing themselves.
The judge said that if the teens can post bond, they can’t contact each other, must wear monitoring bracelets and not have access to cell phones or the Internet. All weapons also must be removed from their homes.
