MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A judge has set $100,000 bail for a teenager accused in a school shooting plot that led to changes in Vermont's gun laws.
Eighteen-year-old Jack Sawyer has been held without bail since his arrest in February on attempted aggravated murder and other charges. He has pleaded not guilty.
No bail was posted immediately after the hearing.
Last week, the Vermont Supreme Court ruled Sawyer's actions in planning a shooting at the Fair Haven Union High School wasn't attempted aggravated murder. It sent the case back to the lower court for a bail hearing.
The judge set conditions for release including that he not have contact with students or school staff and he have a curfew and either be supervised by his father or placed in a psychiatric hospital.
