3 Colorado teens face charges of violent crimes after threats

A rural Colorado town in Otero County is abuzz after it became known that a hit list was posted on social media. Too many lives have been lost nationwide in violent crimes committed at schools, and so the suspects were arrested within a short time. The county sheriff says a high school student first provided a tip about the list that included several of the students and teachers at the school.

The school is in the town of Swink, which has approximately 700 inhabitants. The high school superintendent says parents and children were concerned after it became known that this list appeared on social media. Officers from the sheriff's department were dispatched to the school, and three youths were arrested promptly.

The three students who were arrested are the suspects who allegedly put together the hit list. They were arrested and are now facing charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder along with charges of interfering with an educational institution. After a brief court hearing, the court decided to allow the juveniles time to secure legal counsel, and the case was postponed to a date in December.

When juveniles are charged with anything related to violent crimes, they will likely recognize the severity of their circumstances. Even if these students posted this list as a prank, there could be serious consequences. Parents of Colorado students who are in similar situations will likely seek the support and guidance of an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. A skilled lawyer can protect the legal rights of the accused teenager and work on a defense strategy to achieve the most favorable outcome.
