HOLMES COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — A Holmes County teenager has been charged after allegedly making threats toward a school official, according to the sheriff’s office.
Investigators with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office began looking to the case after hearing about a Holmes County High student carrying a gun in his backpack.
The School Resource Deputy assigned to the school and other staff then responded, discovering that Jose Cmoejo, 16, was carrying “a pellet gun that strongly resembled a .45 caliber handgun.”
The school also looked into the student’s phone, finding a video of him threatening a staff member with the firearm. There was also a video of him “committing lewd and lascivious acts on another minor child.”
The child was charged with making a threat on a school official and lewd and lascivious battery.
In Florida, lewd and lascivious battery is defined as sexual acts involving a child over the age of 12 and under the age of 16.
The investigation is still in progress.
