Criminal charge dismissed against Seneca High student

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Charges were dismissed earlier this month against a Seneca High School accused of engaging in a conversation regarding making a bomb.

Nevan Lee Swinney was arrested in March and charged with wanton endangerment, after he allegedly had a conversation with another student about making a bomb. After authorities learned of the conversation, the school was briefly placed on lockdown.

JCPS officials said Swinney was initially searched and no evidence of a bomb was found.

Swinney has returned to Seneca High School with the support of leaders from the school's JROTC.

Col. Richard A. Maloney, an instructor with Seneca High School's JROTC, wrote in a letter supporting Swinney, "Throughout the entire four years that I have observed him, Nevan has been a model student and cadet. He has never been a discipline or behavior problem, and has always been a good student and one of the top cadets in our JROTC program."

Sgt. Gary Wilson, another leader in the school JROTC program, issued a letter stating, "Nevan Swinney is one of our top Cadets, he is hard working and dedicated to the high school and JROTC program."
