A 17-year-old Hedgesville boy was charged Wednesday with being an accessory before the fact to falsely report a bomb threat, Martinsburg City Police Detective Kevin Miller said.
Also Wednesday, the Martinsburg High School senior charged with phoning in the bomb threat was in court, where he was declared "delinquent and incorrigible" by Berkeley County Circuit Court Judge Christopher Wilkes, said Berkeley County Assistant Prosecutor Gina Groh.
Wilkes ordered the 17-year-old Kearneysville boy to be sent to a youth home in Salem, W.Va., where he will undergo a 30-day diagnosis with medical and psychological tests, Groh said.
