EVANSVILLE, Ind. - An Evansville middle school student has been arrested after police said she used a school-issued computer to send threatening emails to other students.
The principal of North Middle School contacted a deputy assigned as the school’s resource officer Thursday to report threatening emails sent to three students.
Investigators determined that a female student, who was not identified, used a fake name to create an email account and sent the messages, police said.
The girl, who police said admitted to sending the messages, was arrested on a preliminary charge of intimidation, a Class D felony, and taken into custody pending a court hearing.
The student was charged with a felony because a school computer was used and because of the seriousness of the threats, according to the affidavit.
