I think 3 felony charges is a little stiff just for text messages
FISHERS, Ind. - Two students and an adult have been arrested on felony gun charges after police said text messages were sent to classmates at Fishers High School offering a gun for sale.
Fishers Police said they made the discovery when a .22-caliber pistol fell out of a 16-year-old’s pants pockets as officers were breaking up a party at the teen’s home. Their investigation then revealed text messages where the boy had been trying to sell the gun to his classmates.
“I wish I didn’t buy the gun because it obviously got me in a lot of trouble,” the boy told the Call 6 Investigators at his family home.
He admitted that he sent messages to 10 classmates, sometimes during school hours and sometimes containing a picture of the firearm, as he tried to profit from the gun he had been carrying for months in response to bullying.
“I just didn’t feel safe. I mean, I almost always had it,” he said of the gun.
He said he was unable to sell the gun to his classmates because so many told him they already had their own guns.
“Some kids already had guns and some didn’t and they wanted one but they didn’t have the money for one,” he said.
“Other kids have guns to the roof, every kind of gun you can imagine, pretty much any kind of thing you want, they can get you,” he said.

Felony 1: illegally carrying a concealed weapon
Felony 2: Conspiracy to commit a felony (selling gun to a minor)
That is at least two felonies right there...
If he was carrying the gun at school and admitted to it there is #3
This is normal practice to charge people with many crimes in order to get an easy conviction. They will probably get him to cop to one and drop the others.edit on 31-1-2013 by Majiq1 because: (no reason given)
