ROCKFORD, Mich (WZZM) -- Charges have been authorized against a 16-year-old sophomore allegedly behind the six bomb threats directed at Rockford High School and its students in the past school year.
"First off, that's something that Rockford's never had to deal with," said Julie Merchun, mother of two Rockford High School students.
The Rockford schools acted swiftly after the first threat but then more came in --was it just a drawn-out joke or a more serious plot?
"The same level of fear wasn't there for the second and third and fourth time, because it kept reoccurring," said Rockford incoming senior Claire Gault.
"I wasn't so concerned then but when they started naming specific student's names on emails and threats, that's when I started to worry," says Merchun.
