CHICAGO – A high school senior arrested for writing a violent essay for an English class can return to school and will be allowed to graduate with his class, his attorney says.
Allen Lee wrote the essay April 23 at Cary-Grove High and was arrested the next day on two misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct.
The decision to readmit Lee, an honors student with a 4.2 grade-point average, followed negotiations with school district officials, said attorney Dane Loizzo.
“We all reached the same conclusion, which is that he’s not a threat and never was a threat and he should be treated as such,” said Loizzo.
