Osantowski due back in court

Teen who plotted school massacre faces new charges:

Our favorite racist from Threat Central Michigan is due back in court…

A teenage boy convicted of threatening a Columbine-style attack at a Clinton Township high school will face trial in August for unrelated criminal offenses.

Andrew Paul Osantowski, who turned 19 earlier this month, is scheduled to go on trial Aug. 29 in front of Judge Matthew Switalski in Macomb Circuit Court, charged with burglary of a building, larceny and receiving and stealing stolen property. Police say these incidents occurred before his arrest in September 2004 for making a terrorist threat.

Osantowski was convicted about one year ago in circuit court for making a threat of terrorism, use of a computer to further a terrorist act and possession of stolen weapons in connection with his online threats of a massacre at Chippewa Valley High School. He was sentenced in July to 4 1/2 years to 22 years in prison.

One of the offenses for which he is currently charged is for stealing a golf cart from Fern Hill Golf and Country Club in Clinton Township.

About four months ago, the state Court of Appeals reversed Switalski’s throwing out of the bulk of Andrew Osantowski’s confession to police. The statements will assist the county Prosecutor’s Office in pursuing the latest charges against Osantowski.

County Prosecutor Eric Smith previously said his office would not offer the younger Osantowski a plea bargain because of his prior felony convictions.

These charges are considered juvenile charges. No word yet on how this would affect Osantowski’s current adult sentence.
