The unnamed 15-year-old accused in the plot to attack Connetquot High School and a Long Island McDonald’s has pleaded guilty to charges against him.
The 15-year-old boy entered the plea in Family Court in Central Islip on Tuesday. He was originally charged with fifth-degree conspiracy, a misdemeanor, but his plea was for a less serious charge.
The 15-year-old could face prison, probation or hospitalization when he is sentenced on Aug. 21. He also could be permanently removed from his home or placed in a residential treatment center or in foster care.
The next court date for his 17-year-old cohort Michael McDonough is August 6th.
