The older suspect in the plot to attack Quartz Hill High in California entered his plea today…
LOS ANGELES — The older of two teens accused of plotting a Columbine High-type attack at Quartz Hill High School on Valentine’s Day pleaded not guilty Monday to conspiracy to commit murder and a related charge.
Johnny Alvarez Casas, now 18, is also charged with possessing the ingredients to make a destructive device.
Casas — who was 17 at the time of the alleged plot — is being tried as an adult. He remains in custody pending an Aug. 16 pretrial hearing in Lancaster Superior Court.
Casas and another teen allegedly planned to set off a bomb at the high school where they had previously been enrolled.
I think this is the fourth time he’s entered a plea. All not guilty.
