Marshfield Students Face Adult Charges For Bomb Threats

Two Marshfield High School students will be charged in adult court after allegedly making terrorist threats against the school. 

They’ve been identified as Alyssa Portz and Simone Rootellis, both 17 years old, and authorities say they wrote notes in several bathroom stalls saying there would be a bomb at the school on December 18th.

Portz says she then brought the notes to the attention of authorities to try to throw them off the case, saying she didn’t think she would be a suspect if she blew the whistle. Rootellis initially denied participating, but then said she thought it would be a joke. 

Both have now been charged in Wood County court and will find out if the case goes to trial later this month.
