Waseca School Attack Plot Update 07 Jun 14

The public defender for the 17-year-old Waseca boy accused of planning an attack on his school has asked that the charges against him be dismissed. John LaDue is facing 12 felony counts in connection with the case, including attempted murder. Authorities reported finding items consistent with bomb-making material in a storage locker in Waseca, and guns, ammunition, and prepared explosives were also allegedly found in LaDue’s home. His public defender is seeking to have the charges dropped however because of a lack of probable cause. LaDue is expected to be back in court on June 18th.
