Gibraltar student's gun case set to return to court in June

Gibraltar student Aidan Rice will be back in court next month after making his first appearance since he was arrested for the possession of a firearm at school in March.


Rice said then that a former student led to him bringing a gun to Gibraltar for multiple days until his arrest on March 15th. In his criminal complaint, Rice said he was scared of a former student who allegedly pounded on a bathroom door while he was at Wal-Mart a week prior. He added in the complaint that he knew it was illegal to bring the gun, but he had it to protect himself in case the former student showed up. School Resource Officer Heather Bemmann stated then that the unidentified student had not been on campus since last November.


Court records show that Rice received a letter of support last week. During his appearance on Monday, Attorney Shannon Viel advised Rice to waive the time limits for preliminary court questions, a waiver Rice did not understand.


The adjourned initial appearance is now scheduled for June 11th at 1:30 p.m.
