A Wood County teen accused of making threats at the Springfield High School prom this spring was found guilty of disorderly conduct.
Joseph L. H. Taylor, 19, Weston, pleaded no contest in the case in Bowling Green Municipal Court on Sept. 11, after a charge of inducing panic was amended as part of a plea deal.
Bowling Green Prosecutor Matt Reger said this morning that based on counseling that Taylor had undergone, as well as other factors "we believed he'd done a lot to make sure this would never happen again. And Penta was on board with us on this."
Taylor was arrested in April after reportedly threatening to harm people at the high school prom through a Facebook conversation. At that time, Taylor was arrested for inducing panic, and was also taken into custody on a receiving stolen property charge stemming from an unrelated incident.
Inducing panic charges filed in Toledo related to the incident were dismissed.
Taylor is a former Penta Career Center student.
