Cadillac Teenager Charged With Threatening High School, Students

Seventeen-year-old Kaiden George was charged Wednesday as an adult after police say he threatened both Cadillac High School and specific students.

George faces one charge of making an intentional threat to commit an act of violence against a school.

He could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

He was originally arrested on making terrorism threats.

It’s a case the Wexford County Prosecutor says they’re taking extremely seriously.

“We can’t miss the opportunity of responding quickly to ensure the safety of students at the school, those to whomever a threat is made, but also to the person who allegedly made those comments. It’s very important not only to focus on the threat population but also on that person to make sure they are not thinking of hurting themselves,” said Wexford County Prosecutor Jason Elmore.

George was released from jail but was ordered to remain in his home and must wear a tether.

He was also ordered to have no contact with Cadillac High School or student’s police say he threatened.
