Expelled North Teen Pleads Not Guilty in Threatening to Kill
Jordan Hartz is accused of forcing himself into the school, in which he was expelled from, and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend's male friend.
Jordan Hartz pleaded not guilty to multiple charges Friday after he was accused of entering Waukesha North High School and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend's friend, according to the criminal complaint.
Hartz, 18, faces charges that include carrying a concealed weapon, possession of narcotic drugs, disorderly conduct and misdemeanor bail jumping.
The suspect waived his right to a preliminary hearing and the court bound him over for trial, reported FOX 6.
According to the criminal complaint:
Hartz was mad that his ex-girlfriend's friend got on the phone to calm him down and threatened the male friend. He forced himself into the school — where he was expelled from previously — and attempted to force himself into the ex-girlfriend's English class.
After Hartz left the building, a Waukesha police officer saw his vehicle after an attempt-to-locate call was sent via dispatch. Hartz had unpaid parking tickets, so the officer pulled him over for suspended registration.
A police officer located a 10-inch long hunting knife beneath his driver’s seat, syringes and other heroin paraphernalia, and a metal tin that tested positive for heroin.
Hartz faces up to 3 years and 2 months in prison if convicted. He will appear in court for a hearing at 9:30 a.m. March 4.
