Judge Joe Kirby released to house arrest the 15-year-old Lebanon High School student accused of threatening students at Lebanon High School with a knife.

A 15-year-old Lebanon High School student accused of threatening students at school with a knife was released from detention today after a hearing in Warren County Juvenile Court.

The student, a resident of Clearcreek Twp., “did possess a knife and threaten other students at school” on Sept. 15 at Lebanon High School, according to a complaint filed by Officer Stephen Drake of the Lebanon Police Department.

On Wednesday, Judge Joe Kirby ordered the student to “be immediately released” to house arrest and to continue mental health counseling, pending a court hearing set for Oct. 18.

Meanwhile, the student was ordered to report for classes at the Mary Haven Center in the county complex in Lebanon, told to stay off school property and ordered to avoid contact with anyone listed in a protection order issued in the case.

School officials reported finding multiple knives after students reported that they had either seen or heard about the knives.

No one was injured.
