After the recent brouhaha concerning the teenager who wore a NRA TShirt to school, this teenager would seem to be toast.
She knowingly violated the school's policy so it would seem she has no defense for her actions.
Or perhaps "zero tolerance" policies are a problem
Kiera Wilmot, 16, could face up to five years in prison for exploding a water bottle on the grounds of her high school.
A teenage girl could face up to five years in prison for “discharging weapons or firerarms” on the grounds of Bartow High School in the town of Bartow, Florida. Kiera Wilmot, 16, was arrested by local police and taken into custody after causing a small explosion on campus.
There were no deaths, and no injuries. In fact, the only property damaged by the explosion was an eight ounce plastic water bottle. That’s because the “weapon” Wilmot detonated was a mixture of toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum foil, which she mixed together in the bottle as part of an apparent amateur science project.
Nonetheless, Wilmot—who has consistently good grades and no prior criminal record—is being brought up on felony charges, and will be tried as an adult.
