Racine police say an 18-year-old high school student is facing charges after he brought two knives to school.

James Lashley, of Racine, was charged Wednesday in Racine County Circuit Court with one misdemeanor count of possession of a dangerous weapons on school premises. If convicted, he faces up to nine months in jail and/or up to $10,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint, administrators at William Horlick High School Tuesday received a call that Lashley may have a knife in his backpack. School resource officers called Lashley to the office and asked if he had anything he shouldn’t.

Police say Lashley admitted to having a knife, and he pulled two out of his backpack. One was 11 inches long with a 6-inch blade, and the second had a 3-inch blade. He also had two rounds of ammunition. Lashley was advised he was being arrested, and he was taken into custody without incident.

Lashley was assigned a $1,000 signature bond and was no longer in custody as of Wednesday night. He will next be in court Oct. 13 for a pre-trial conference.
