North Port police say they’ve arrested 19 year old Kyle McMahon of Port Charlotte for making a fake bomb threat earlier this week. On Monday someone anonymously posted on Facebook that there may be explosives on the North Port High School campus. Bomb sniffing dogs did a sweep of the school but police said the threat was a hoax. McMahon turned himself in to detectives on Friday morning. Sarasota County Schools announced that anyone caught making threats to a school would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
What to do After a Bomb Threat Arrest
Anyone arrested for making a bomb threat faces a really tough criminal prosecution. That’s why it’s important to find a board certified criminal defense lawyer, like Mark Zimmerman, to represent you. Your attorney should immediately start scrutinizing the police evidence to see if your rights were violated in the arrest. You lawyer will also begin an independent investigation into your case to help you beat the charges. Often there’s a lack of real evidence to prove that a defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If the police arrest you without having probable cause, your attorney can use that to suppress any evidence they’ve collected.
