Teen Arrested For Terroristic Threats

Written by Staff Report

SARATOGA SPRINGS— A local teen was arrested on Friday, February 14 after the police received notification of her objective to detonate the BOCES F. Donald Education Center located on Henning Road.

Riley J. Older, 16, of Greenfield Center was charged with the felony of making a terroristic threat after teachers and students were informed by Older of her intentions on Wednesday and in response notified the Saratoga Springs police.

A threat is characterized as terroristic when one has just the intention of inducing fear into the population by threatening to commit a specific offense and can be charged even if they had no actual intention or capability to carry out the specified threat, according to the New York State penal code.

The police discussed the incident with Saratoga County District Attorney James A. Murphy III before Older’s arrest.  (Murphy) said, “Based on her alleged threats, the terroristic threat is an appropriate charge given her age and the possibility that she has mental health issues. We will proceed cautiously and have a psychiatrist evaluate her.”

Older was released after her indictment on Friday.
