Lawyer says school rushed to judgment, accused wrong student in bomb threat probe

A student at Honeoye Falls-Lima High School accused of setting off a bomb scare vowed to fight the school system’s decision that she was responsible, and a lengthy suspension from school for it.

“I was mad,” she said. “I was more mad than scared because I knew that I didn’t do it and they were trying to accuse me of it.”

The student, who News10NBC is not identifying, admitted she was indeed scared on Oct. 1 when the school was suddenly locked down over a message found on a bathroom wall.

The message, written in magic marker, declared, “I’m gonna BOMB this school. Just you wait.”  Life at Honeoye Falls-Lima High got back to normal after the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office found no bomb, but for one student, the situation got worse three days later when she was accused of writing the message.
