WATERTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - A 16-year-old boy has been sentenced to up to three years in state prison for threatening students and staff at a northern New York high school with a rifle.

Nicholas Nicorvo of Fort Drum was sentenced Tuesday in Jefferson County Court after pleading guilty in July to second-degree attempted murder.

The Watertown Daily Times reports (https://bit.ly/1KLFxat ) that Nicorvo admitted that on Jan. 15, 2014, he attempted to kill or seriously injure classmates and staff at Indian River High School. Science teacher Robert Kuba was hailed as a hero for disarming the youth, who brought the rifle to Kuba’s class in a case.

While Nicorvo was prosecuted as a juvenile offender, Judge Kim Martusewicz refused to grant him youthful offender status which would have sealed records in the case.
