ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — A Rochester teenager accused of bringing a knife to school this fall and threatening a group of students has pleaded guilty to two felonies.

The 17-year-old was sentenced last week in juvenile court to 14 months probation.

The boy was accused of pulling out a knife in Century High School on Sept. 21.

The Post-Bulletin reports the boy pleaded guilty to possessing a dangerous weapon on school property. He also pleaded guilty to making terroristic threats for violating a court order to not make contact with a victim of the incident.

Probation terms include that the boy write a letter of apology to the victims and the school and not possess firearms or dangerous weapons. He also has to do 40 hours of community service.
