[JURIST] Detroit high school student Andrew Osantowski has been convicted under a post 9/11 Michigan state anti-terror law of two counts of threatening terrorism against fellow students at his Chippewa Valley High School [school website]. The case could be the first application in the US of terror laws to prosecute threatened school violence, and is the first instance of such an application in Michigan. Critics say that laying of terror charges in cases like this is inappropriate [Detroit Free Press report] and is not what the framers of that legislation intended. Osantowski's arrest followed the turning over of threatening messages he posted in an Internet chat room; authorities later found weapons and Nazi paraphenalia in his home. The Detroit News has extensive local coverage.
