18-year-old Zachary Fraley of Homer was charged with first-degree terroristic threatening after a bomb prank at Homer High School last May.
Fraley and an unnamed 16-year-old boy allegedly left a device which looked like a bomb in a high school stairwell, prompting the evacuation of the school’s 370 students.
Fraley has accepted a plea deal for disorderly conduct instead, which will see him placed on probation. The teen received a suspended imposition of sentence last week, but can petition to have the conviction wiped from his record, if he fulfills the terms of probation.
As well as community service, he’s require to send letters of apology to the school and local media.
