A former Savannah Country Day 9th grader is in court today, he's accused of making an explosive devise and bringing it to school for a fellow student.
This is the boy's trial. It's up to Chatham County juvenile court judge to decide his fate.
There's not much debate that the 15-year-old mixed some fireworks chemicals together and put them in a Play-doh like container. He's accused of bringing them to the Savannah County Day School back in November.
The question is--did the student make it as a joke or did he really intend to harm or kill someone with it?
Prosecutors have been calling witnesses since 9 a.m. this morning.
The defense plans to call about a dozen witnesses--including two former FBI explosive experts and a pyrotechnic expert flown in from Colorado.
The 15-year-old is facing three felony charges related to making a destructive device and a lesser reckless conduct charge.
The judge can sentence him to a maximum of five years in a youth detention center.
The fellow student he's accused of making the bomb for is facing similar charges and will be in court later this month.
