Amos can return to work;
Jury trial scheduled

by Dave Kinnamon
Landmark reporter

Sean M. Amos’ trial for the felony of making a terrorist threat has been set for Monday, Nov. 27, 2006, at 9 a.m.

The jury trial will occur in Division 2 of the Platte County Courthouse.

The trial setting was made by Presiding Judge Owens Lee Hull, Jr., of the 6th Judicial Circuit of Platte County.

The court action occurred on Thursday at a docket call hearing for Amos, in which he was represented by attorney Jeffrey Eastman of Gladstone.

The Platte County prosecutor was represented by Mark Gibson, assistant prosecuting attorney.

This past April, Platte County Prosecutor Eric Zahnd charged Amos and co-defendant Trevor P. Fattig, both age 17, each with one count of the felony of making a terrorist threat.

Zahnd alleges that the two made several threats to shoot people and detonate explosives at Platte County High School on April 20, 2006, the seventh-year anniversary of the Columbine school shootings.

On Thursday, Eastman asked Judge Hull if Amos could be released from house arrest in order to work. As part of the work release, Amos will be allowed to remove the electronic monitoring system which keeps track of his whereabouts while he is at home, out on bond. The judge consented.

One week ago, Judge Hull granted a similar request to Fattig.

Unlike Fattig’s work release request, the Platte County prosecutor’s office made no objection to Amos’ request for work release.
