CO - Sienna Johnson & Brooke Higgins, charged in murder plot at HS, Denver, Dec 2015
Girl charged as adult in murder plot at Denver-area school
CASTLE ROCK, Colo. – One of two 16-year-old girls accused of conspiring to kill students at their suburban Denver high school has been charged as an adult after prosecutors say she bought a BB gun for target practice and mapped plans for an attack.
Prosecutors on Tuesday charged Sienna Johnson with conspiracy to commit murder and asked that she not be allowed to return to Mountain Vista High School in the affluent suburb of Highlands Ranch. Defense attorneys requested a hearing to transfer the case back to juvenile court.
A judge set her bond at $1 million. Prosecutors said Johnson showed no remorse and told investigators that if she were released she would try again and better hide her plans.
The girls were arrested after police were alerted to their plans on Dec. 12 via a text-a-tip program developed for schools.

From article published today:
CASTLE ROCK — Friends of one of the two 16-year-old girls accused in a mass murder plot at their high school raised worries about her violent Internet posts at least two months before authorities arrested her.
Concerns about Sienna Johnson brought to a school counselor were investigated by the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, authorities say, but the case was dropped because no criminal wrongdoing was found.
"There was no criminal activity," Sheriff Tony Spurlock told The Denver Post. "There was nothing that led us to believe that there was any kind of crime, or potential crime."
This article says the judge has sealed the records for this case, so not sure how much info will come out.
A second girl has also been arrested- Brooke Higgins. Higgins is due back in court on 1/21.

This is interesting- Brooke Higgins' family has hired an attorney and PR company - (most likely the attorneys recommended the PR firm)
"The delay in the move to prosecute Higgins through the adult court system gave Higgins's family the opportunity to lawyer up, as well as to secure the services of GBSM, a powerful Denver-based management consulting, strategic communications and public affairs firm.
Presumably, these pros are responsible for more effectively scrubbing Higgins's social media profile from the Internet than was the case with Johnson, whose Facebook and (fascinating) Weebly pages remain online at this writing.
Moreover, a GBSM associate contacted Westword to ask that we "not publish photos of Brooke given she is a 16-year-old girl and the circumstance of her case (including that it may end up back in juvenile court)." However, the associate added, "If your outlet does choose to publish photos, the family would at least like you to have a high-quality version." "
10-18-2016, 09:48 PM #8A Douglas County judge delayed a hearing in the case of a 16-year-old girl accused of plotting to attack Mountain Vista High School until the state Supreme Court officially releases the case after considering a question about mental health records.
The judge expects the court mandate to be released Wednesday in the case of Brooke Higgins, who is charged with planning an attack on the school with another girl, Sienna Johnson, 16.
The two face charges of conspiracy to commit murder and prosecutors have charged them as adults.
