Waseca teen who plotted massacre could possibly go home next week


WASECA, MINN. – John La­Due, the teen arrested near­ly two years ago for plot­ting a mas­sa­cre at his school, could go home as soon as next week if auth­ori­ties can’t find a spot for him at a state-op­er­at­ed treat­ment e­val­u­a­tion fa­cil­i­ty.

While his re­turn home prob­a­bly would last only un­til a fa­cil­i­ty bed opens, a judge said Wednes­day that auth­ori­ties can’t in­car­cer­ate the 19-year-old be­yond Jan. 28.

On that date, La­Due will have served his en­tire fel­o­ny sen­tence for pos­sess­ing an ex­plo­sive de­vice and can no long­er be jailed, the judge ex­plained dur­ing a hear­ing in Waseca County District Court.
