A woman accused of going to the Academy of Richmond County with a stun gun intent on harming a student last month was sent back to jail Thursday.

Veronica Bush, 23, has yet to be indicted on charges of terroristic threats and taking a weapon onto school grounds, but the charges led Judge Michael N. Annis to revoke a probation sentence from 2010.

On Thursday, Annis ordered her to spend the remaining 17 months in jail from the sentence for obstruction of a law enforcement officer and misdemeanor theft.

Bush was arrested Dec. 7 after the father of an 18-year-old Richmond Academy student said Bush called him and made threats against his daughter, a police report states. The report says Bush had a stun gun and told authorities she also had a handgun but didn’t intend to use it.

School days, school days.....

good old golden rule days; reading and writing and arithmetic; taught to the tune of a hickory stick;

But we have progressed in basic education. Daily criminal activity reports, no criminal punishment, tribunals with no power, teacher and staff assaulted, parents who dropped out of school return with weapons, sexual activity by staff and students and on students. Sounds more like a jail than a school?
