SAN ANTONIO -- A 12-year-old girl accused of threatening to blow up Briscoe Middle School was told on Thursday that she will remain in custody until her next court date -- two weeks away.

The identity of the suspect is not included in this report because of her age.

The seventh-grader allegedly called in a bomb threat to the school's tip line on Wednesday, San Antonio police said. On Thursday morning, she walked into the 289th District Court in hand cuffs.

With her parents watching, Judge Carmen Kelsey explained why the teen would not be released to her family.

"Your probation officer recommends detention. They say that you are not allowing supervision to be provided by your parents, and you could be a danger to others and or yourself," Kelsey said. "I'm going to follow that recommendation."

Her next hearing is set for Thursday, Oct. 18.
