WASECA, Minn. (AP) - The attorney for a teen accused of plotting to carry out an attack at Waseca Junior and Senior High School says the case might stay in juvenile court.

In March, the Minnesota Court of Appeals affirmed a lower court decision to dismiss the most serious counts against the 18-year-old.

KTOE-AM reports defense attorney Stephen Ferrazzano says the teen has shown he’s amenable to treatment.

Nearly a year ago, the then-17-year-old boy was arrested after Waseca police say they found him in a rented storage unit with bomb-making materials and a plan to kill his family and attack his high school.

The teen still faces six counts of possessing explosives. A hearing on whether to certify him as an adult will be held June 30.

Prosecutor Brenda Miller declined to comment.
