Verdict in Plot to Attack School

They were accused of planning to kill faculty and students at the Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind. But two former students were found not guilty of the creating the supposed plot. Their attorney blamed the situation on a misunderstanding, saying one of the defendants was “overheard making a very inappropriate joke." Police found no weapons in their possession and little evidence turned up that they actually intended to attack the school. Both students are deaf.
