2 Albion teens plead guilty to threatening school

Two Albion teenagers charged with plotting to attack their middle school with guns and explosives have pleaded guilty to conspiracy.

The boys appeared Tuesday in Orleans County Family Court, where they admitted their part in what investigators said in November was a credible threat against Albion Middle School. A third boy is due in court later this month.

The three are all under 16 years old and charged as juveniles.

They were arrested in November after police said they set a date to attack the rural school using explosives and firearms. No explosives were recovered.
