Suburban teen pleads guilty in threats case

A northwest suburban teenager has admitted he threatened teachers and students at Huntley high school. William Kuhns, 18, is a former student at the school. In court Friday, he admitted he made statements on his MySpace Internet page last year about killing students and teachers.

Kuhns pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge. He is required to pay a $200 fine and to do 100 hours of community service.

Prosecutors say there is no indication Kuhns really was serious about following through on those threats.
