(Neb)-"No Contest" Pleas In Plan To Attack South-Central Neb High School

By: John Axtell Posted at: 01/30/2019 01:20 PM
CAMBRIDGE, Neb. (AP) - A March 4 sentencing hearing is scheduled for two 18-year-olds who have pleaded No Contest planning to attack Cambridge High School in south-central Nebraska.
      Joseph Williams of Oxford and Aron McMains of North Platte entered their pleas Monday to misdemeanor attempted terroristic threats after prosecutors had lowered the charges from felony counts.
     Court records say Williams, McMains and two 17-year-old boys had been discussing an attack on Cambridge High for months, but when one of the other 2 transferred to a different school, the remaining trio tried to recruit another student.
     One of the students told police he thought the plan was a joke but wasn't sure whether the others felt that way. Both 17-year-olds are seeking to be prosecuted as juveniles.
