Hearings conducted for bomb threat students

GLASGOW — Two student hearings were conducted in connection with the recent Barren County school bomb threats during the Barren County Board of Education regular session Thursday night.

One Barren County Middle School student was assigned to Barren County Day Treatment and the other BCMS student was assigned to the Barren County Schools Alternative School.

Last month, the Barren County Sheriff's Office announced they had charged five female juveniles and one adult female, Renee Farley, 38, with the bomb threats related to Barren County Middle School, Barren County High School and Temple Hill Elementary School.

The five female juveniles were charged with first-degree terroristic threatening in connection to the BCMS and BCHS bomb threat last month.

Barren County Superintendent Bo Matthews said the other three juvenile students were dealt with in pre-board hearings prior to Thursday night. In a previous statement, just after the individuals responsible for the bomb threats were identified, Matthews said he hopes the harsh penalties would deter others and help put a stop to the school bomb threats, which he described as very disruptive to the academic process.
