17-year-old charged in Homer High School threat investigation

HOMER, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A 17-year-old is facing criminal charges after an investigation into an unspecified threat at Homer High School.

He was charged with first-degree falsely reporting an incident, a class D felony.

He was arraigned in Town of Homer Court, and is scheduled to return to court at a later date.
