Guilty Plea In Princeton High School Gun Case

Posted by wlpo on April 19, 2012

The teen who walked into Princeton High School with a loaded shotgun has pled guilty to the crime.

18-year old Blake Schmidt of Princeton pled guilty Wednesday to a class 3 felony of unlawful use of a weapon.  He’ll be sentenced June 13th.  He could get anything from probation to up to five years in prison.

Schmidt was arrested last November after he walked into Princeton High School with a loaded shotgun as classes were getting out.  After about an hour of negotiating, he surrendered his weapon.  He never pointed the loaded gun at anyone.

Schmidt didn’t go to Princeton High at the time.
