PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A Maine teenager who police say sent two threatening emails to a school district that closed school for three days last year has pleaded guilty.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1NTolzI ) the 17-year-old teen entered a guilty plea on Thursday in Portland to two felony counts of terrorizing for forcing the evacuation of government buildings.

The plea agreement allows him to withdraw his plea in the next two years if he doesn’t violate his conditions.

Police say the teen sent emails on Dec. 14 to two school administrators threatening violence. It prompted officials to shut down all eight schools in Regional School Unit 14. The shutdown kept 3,300 students in Windham and Raymond out of class for three days.

His attorney says his client “had more skills than judgment.”
