Felony charges filed in incidents
Students find prank threats no laughing matter ... for them

Paulding County deputies have arrested two teens, one a 17-year old junior at North Paulding High and the other a 16-year old girl at Hiram High for making false reports regarding school shooting threats.

In the North Paulding High incident Wednesday, the student called E-911 with a report that a student was attempting to enter classrooms with a gun. E-911 put out the call and multiple deputies responded to NPHS and quickly located the female student who sent the messages. Upon furhter investigation the deputities determined the entire incident was a hoax.  No one at NPHS had a gun at the school, the release stated. 

The student, identified as Ava Nicole Paige Casteel is at the Paulding County Detention Center charged with felony false statements, felony creating a false public alarm, disruption of a public school and making a false report of a crime; the latter two being misdemeanors.

Authorities said the 17 year old girl was not believed to be responsible for a threat reported written on a bathroom wall at NPHS Tuesday. The investigation into the person responsible for that incident continues.

A similar incident - a shooting threat written on a bathroom wall - was reported at Hiram on Monday.  Deputies identified the student responsible, a 16-year old juvenile was found responsible for writing the threats and the student, a girl, was arrested and detained at the Rome Regional Youth Detention Center.  The girl is charged with felony terroristic threats and criminal interference with government property, also a felony.

"Our country is in a state of turmoil with school shootings and school shoooting threats," said Paulding Sheriff Gary Gulledge. "Our students need to understand that if a threat is made, whether it is written on a wall, a desk, or published and shared on social media, we will arrest and prosecute those students to the fullest extent of the law.  This type of criminal behavior has to stop today!"

Add a 13 year old girl to the crew of kids making this felonious, dumb mistake ... this time at East Paulding Middle School.



For Immediate Release
East Paulding Middle School Student Arrested for Making Threats
(Paulding County, GA) At 6:27 PM on Wednesday February 28, 2018 a parent
called the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office stating that her child heard another
student make threats to “shoot up the school” tomorrow. The parent stated that the
shooting would occur at East Paulding Middle School on Thursday March 1, 2018
at an unspecified time. Detectives with the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office
Juvenile Investigations Division immediately went to work and located the alleged
student who made the alleged threats. As a result of interviews with witnesses and
the alleged suspect, a 13 year old East Paulding middle school student was arrested
and charged with the following offense:
East Paulding Middle School Student
13 YOA Female
-Terroristic Threats (F)
The student was arrested but not detained by the Georgia Department of Juvenile
Justice which means that she was released back into the care of her parent(s).
Whatever disciplinary sanctions that are imposed by the Paulding County School
District on this student, or any other student, by their policy will not be released to
the public.
We want to encourage parents, students, and teachers to continue to report any and
all threats to School Administrators and to the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff’s Office will investigate every single threat made against a student,
teacher, or a school in Paulding County. If there is enough evidence to support
criminal charges, we will pursure them. We also want to remind parents to please
talk to your children and stress the importance of the consequences for making
these types of threats

Fortunately we have a Sheriff who takes his job seriously.


Unlike the Coward from Broward, who spends his time worshiping Hillary.

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".



I guess you haven't been to Detroit recently?  Or, Newark or East St.Louis or Gary, IN, or Stockton, CA?


You know, those bastions of liberal Democrat government that have been so successful in attracting wealthy, educated leaders and businesspeople.  Progressive people,  who have uplifted the poorer of their brethren, so their city can be that bright example of how well Socialism works.

The punishment needs to be much more than paying a fine (that Mommy and Daddy will pay) and probation. Put them out on the streets, in stripes, picking up garbage--anything to let them know that it's not just a slap on the wrist. Juvenile seems to be really lenient on these kids. They need to feel like they are being punished like an adult so they know what will happen if there is a next time.

Parents need to take the time to teach their kids not to be straight-up dumbasses in the first place.
