Hearing delayed for suspect in Roy High School bombing plot
Brian Nicholson, Deseret News
OGDEN — The oldest of the two students involved in an alleged plot to bomb Roy High School appeared in court for the first time Wednesday.
Dallin Todd Morgan, 18, is charged with use of a weapon of mass destruction, a first-degree felony punishable by a maximum of a $20,000 fine and up to life in prison. Morgan didn't say much during the brief initial appearance and stood with his hands to his side, next to his attorney.
Ogden's 2nd District Judge W. Brent West recused himself from the case, citing a conflict of interest with the office of one of the attorneys involved. The delayed hearing was set for Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. in front of Judge Michael Lyon.
West mentioned that if the court decides to try Morgan's 16-year-old alleged accomplice as an adult, Lyon will likely preside over both trials.
Morgan arrived early for court Wednesday, with several family members, including his parents, in tow. The family left the courthouse quickly after the hearing, declining to speak to the media.
