Hempfield senior charged with terroristic threats

Saturday, Dec. 29, 2012, 12:01 a.m.
 

An 18-year-old Hempfield Area High School senior was charged Thursday with making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct after she allegedly threatened to kill people in social media posts.

Heidi Marie Tressler was arraigned before District Justice Mark Mansour of Hempfield and released on $10,000 bond, according to court records. She faces a preliminary hearing Jan. 4.

Tressler was suspended after the state police notified district officials of the threats, which were being tracked by a cyber-monitoring company based in York County that reported the Twitter and Facebook posts. Tressler displayed photos of herself holding guns and chewing a wad of tobacco.

Tressler allegedly wrote that she was going to kill some people and had to decide whom she would kill quickly and whom she would make suffer.

Tressler was questioned by school officials, then suspended. She faces expulsion from school, where she was a pole vaulter on the track team.
