MARYVILLE (WATE) - An eleven-year-old girl is in custody in the Blount County Juvenile Detention Center.

The Heritage Middle School student is accused of making threats involving her school.

Blount County deputies say the girl admitted to writing a threatening letter. They say the letter targeted specific school employees.

Heritage Middle School officials quickly identified her and brought her to the office for questioning Wednesday morning. They say she admitted writing the letter because she got in trouble at school.

Deputies say the girl did not have access to any weapons.

She is now facing a charge of delinquency by civil rights intimidation.
