The teen who pleaded guilty to two felony charges for plotting to blow up two Albemarle County schools was in court Wednesday morning.

The 16-year-old Western Albemarle high school student was to be sentenced for his involvement in the plot but his sentencing was postponed.

The defense filed a motion for a continuance. Speaking with the teen’s family, they said they needed more time to explore different prison programs and alternative rehabilitation programs for their son.

This teen is one of four charged in connection with the plot. A 15-year-old has been convicted of two felonies. Two 13-year-olds also faced charges. Their fate is unknown as state law makes cases for kids under the age of 14 confidential.

The 16-year-old will now face sentencing on April 19, 2006.
