17-year-old Kyle Stockford was arrested in October and he appeared in district court again Wednesday morning for a pre-trial hearing.
The Marshfield High School student previously pled not guilty to two counts of threatening to commit murder and one count of promoting anarchy.
A police investigation into Stockford’s social media account called Twitter revealed that he wrote messages threatening a female classmate. Other messages on Stockford’s Twitter page said that he was “plotting something.”
Stockford was released on $1,000 bail and a Plymouth District judge said that Stockford could only return to Marshfield High School with the school department’s consent. Superintendent Scott Borstel declined to comment on whether or not the 17-year-old is still a Marshfield High School student, citing the confidentiality of student records.
Stockford is scheduled to return to court on December 20th for another pre-trial hearing.
