CEDAR HILL, MO - The attorney for a Jefferson County teen charged with making terrorist threats at a high school, wants his charges dropped.

According to court documents, attorney David Crosby argued that his client, 18-year-old Chance Foy was only practicing his First Amendment Right.

Part of the document read, “If it is not a true threat, the communication is protected by the First Amendment-Freedom of Speech.  The defendant request that the complaint be dismissed.”
