Dacula Middle School Student Facing Criminal Charge After Allegedly Making Threatening Statements

Incident reportedly happened as the students were walking toward the bus after school.

A sixth grade student is facing a charge of terroristic threats and acts after a Dec. 3 incident at Dacula Middle School.

According to Jorge Quintana, Director of Media Relations for Gwinnett County Public Schools, the sixth grader allegedly made a threatening statement to another student as they were walking toward the bus lanes after school.

"Dacula Middle administrators immediately looked into the case and were in touch with parents as well as the school resource officer," Quintana wrote in an email to Dacula Patch.

GCPS did not disclose any further details regarding the incident.

In addition to the criminal charge, the student is also facing school disciplinary measures.

These schools are NOT following their own policies and what is now state law. Three strikes and you're out regarding bullying. They are letting bullying go way too far and only taking action when it gains public attention. I would encourage every person that has an opinion on this post to go work one month at DMS then come back and tell us how you feel. The behavior of these 11 and 12 year old children are out of control and after reading some of these post I can see why. Completely out of touch parents.

Parents need to start being involved in their children's lives!!! Quit blaming the school systems and check your kid's fb, instagram and twitter accounts... I bet you will be surprised at what you find. Take a second to be a parent to your child instead of expecting your school to raise them. Teachers are there to educate, not police your inadequacies as a parent!!!

I just don't understand how this child can be back in the regular classroom. If she had been bullying another student all year and then threatened her, why did she not get expelled??

The bully has now been suspended a second time for harassing the same victim AGAIN after being allowed to return to classes!

At what point will they just expel her?? This is ridiculous!
