A Michigan middle school teacher was charged Monday for allegedly making a false report or threat of terrorism, just days after she was arrested for distributing notes that alluded to a school shooting.
Johnna Rhone, 59, was arrested on Dec. 18 for allegedly placing at least three threatening, handwritten notes that morning around Jefferson Middle School in St. Clair Shores, a school about 20 miles outside of Detroit.
Surveillance footage caught Rhone placing the notes at teacher stations around the school, prosecutors told the Detroit Free Press.
Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido told the Detroit News at least one note contained a threat of a school shooting. The note read: “Start break early. He’s gonna do it. Just don’t be in the hall after lunch. Boom! Get it?”
Rhone, who has worked in the district for 21 years, will fight the charges, an attorney told The Detroit News. She was arraigned on Monday and pleaded not guilty. Her bond was set at $75,000.
