A student accused of planning an attack with weapons and or explosives on Palisade High School was in court Thursday morning to be charged.

Eighteen–year-old Robert Dell Johnson is charged with solicitation to commit possession of explosives or an incendiary device, which is a felony.

He is also charged with interference with staff, faculty or students of an educational institution, a misdemeanor.

Johnson’s attorney says he has no prior record and asked that his bond be reduced.

That request was denied but he will be back in court next week for the judge to consider a reduction in his bond.

For now, he remains in custody on a $100,000 bond.

Details of the potential threat haven’t been released, but the District Attorney has said they’re profoundly disturbing.
