Venue Change Granted in School Threat Case
(BOWLING GREEN) A change of venue is granted in the case of a Clarksville teen accused of saying he planned to kill everyone at Clopton High School.
A judge on Monday granted a change of venue to Montgomery County for James Paul Coleman, but denied a request for lower bail. The 17-year-old suspect is charged with making a terrorist threat. A new court date has not been set.
Coleman was arrested after allegedly fighting with another student on January 11th.
In a probable cause statement, administrators told authorities that after the fight was broken up, the suspect allegedly made several comments about killing everyone in the school.
A trial was to have started June Sixth, but was postponed after a new judge was appointed.
Coleman is being held on 25 thousand dollars cash-only bond. If he makes bail, a stipulation says he’s not to possess weapons of any kind.
