No one was hurt by the "explosion," but later that day Wilmot was handcuffed, arrested, and expelled from school. According to the police report, she has been charged with two felonies: "possession/discharge of a weapon on school grounds" and "discharging a destructive device."
Laws and school rules like these are brutal and I hope that she gets off. But I have heard similar stories where an aggressive DA starts relating it to terrorism and wants to uphold the felony.
I worry that my boys, who are angels, will do something that kids do and end up with a police record.
