John Schultz IV, a teen who allegedly planned a “Columbine-style” school shooting, as part of a plea agreement, pleads guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit murder does not result in death, a Level 2 felony, State v. Schultz IV, No. 25C01- 2007-F2-000496. All other charges against Schultz were dropped as part of the plea agreement, including an additional charge of conspiracy to commit murder does not result in death, possession intimidation, possession of a narcotic drug, and possession of methamphetamine. Schultz’s plea came after eight hours of jury deliberation and two full trials. Schultz’s sentencing is scheduled for March 7. He could face 10 to 30 years, but WBND-LD ABC57 of South Bend reports that, as part of the plea agreement, Schultz could enter into immediate probation instead of facing time in prison. In our last issue we told you about the then ongoing retrial of Schultz. The first trial for Schultz ended in a mistrial in July 2021. The other person charged in this case, Donald Robin Jr., was sentenced to 17 years. Robin Jr. had testified that he and Schultz had planned a school shooting because they were angry about being bullied and admitted they were inspired by the Columbine shooters.
