A Bucksport teenager convicted of terrorizing will be serving 2 years for his crime. Jonathan Hayes (18) was charged with terrorizing because of violent lyrics on a CD.
Assistant District Attorney Mary Kellett says it contains graphic descriptions of a school shooting and Bucksport High School is mentioned at the end of the song.
Kellett says all threats to public safety have to be taken seriously and in this case the threat took the form of a song. Jonathan Hayes will be at a youth center until he turns twenty.
Hayes argued the song was an expression of free speech but police say threats are not covered by the constitution.
Bucksport police say any form of terrorizing is a crime and they hope this case will be a lesson to others.
