LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — One of the teens accused of making racially motivated terroristic threats against African-American students at Arbor View High School admitted to making the threats in court Friday.

The two students, who are 15 and 16-year-old males, were arrested by Clark County School Police last month. They are facing charges of making terrorist threats, conspiracy to commit terrorist threats, hate crime, cyberbullying and breach of peace.

The one student who admitted to making the terroristic threats in court entered a guilty plea to a charge of felony naming multiple victims. He will be sentenced on next Friday, which is also when the other teen is expected to enter his plea. 

There names were not released because they are under age.

There was a total of nine victims identified in this case, but Bridgett Duffy with the D.A.’s office said in her opinion, ‘every black child at Arbor View is a victim.’
