Thomas did not attend the school, which authorities say was on a soft lockdown for about one hour after Thomas phoned in the threat on Nov. 14.

In addition to Thomas, Hoffman Estates police arrested three other teens: two juveniles and Markeisha N. Jones, 18, of Hanover Park, who were charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct. A Cook County judge dismissed the charges against Jones in February.
