Two more Lebanon school boys are facing charges in connection with the Sept. 15 incident involving knives in the high school.

On Oct. 6, a 15-year-old Lebanon boy and a 17-year-old Clearcreek Twp. boy were charged in Warren County Juvenile Court with conveying a deadly weapon in a school safety zone.

In the complaints, Officer Stephen Drake said, ““Subject did bring a knife to Lebanon High School, but did not threaten anyone. Warren County wanted charges filed.”

Last week, another 15-year-old admitted he brought a knife to the high school on Sept. 15 to protect himself from another student.

School officials reported finding multiple knives after students reported that they had either seen or heard about the knives. No one was injured.

The 15-year-old was charged immediately after the incident with threatening another student.

He is scheduled for sentencing on the conveyance charge on Nov. 13, the same time the other two charged on Oct. 6 are scheduled to return to the juvenile court for pretrial and arraignment hearings.
