Teen gets time for role in scliool plot By The Associated Press HOLTON — James R. Lopez, one of three teen-agers charged in what authorities called a Columbine-style plot against their high school, was sentenced Thursday to 18 months in a juvenile correctional facility However, Judge Dennis Reiling ordered that Lopez, 17, receive credit for the 70 days he spent in custody since his arrest in February He also ordered Lopez to be under supervision for two years after his release. The sentence in Jackson County came after more than two hours of testimony by Lopez and his parents. They asked that their son receive probation and be allowed to live in Boston with his father, Gordon Lopez. The judge called Lopez "a bright young man" but added, "damage has been caused by his action." "This act, even in jest or joke, has caused great harm to this community" Reiling said. Lopez, Mayetta, reached a plea agreement last month to avoid being tried as an adult. Under the agreement, the court found Lopez guilty of one charge of criminal use of explosives and criminal threat. In February Lopez was charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated arson. The state filed additional charges of solicitation to commit aggravated arson, two counts of criminal use of explosives, aggravated intimidation of a witness and criminal threat.
