Monroe County Weapons Charges

Posted By Patrick M. Rogan || 5-Jul-2009

This past June, two students from the Monroe County Pleasant Valley School District were accused of weapons charges.

An 18-year-old student was accused of bringing a .38-caliber handgun to the high school and leaving it in a parked car.

During a metal detector search, a 15-year-old student was allegedly found with a 7.5 inch knife.

Though neither student committed an act of violence or even of threatened violence, both face serious criminal weapons charges, in addition to school expulsions under Act 26, which prohibits PA students from bringing weapons onto school property and requires administrators to notify law enforcement and to expel the offender, in most cases.
