Allege Columbine-like attack: FL police arrest three

A mother fights back tears as her daughter along with two other teens go before a judge accused of plotting a school massacre.

Barbara Russell cried as she watched a judge sentence her 13-year-old daughter in Volusia County. Charlene Russell will now spend the next 21 days in a juvenile detention center.

Police arrested Charlene and two other teens Friday for supposedly planning a Columbine-like attack at Deland Middle School. "She's never had a gun in her hands; she doesn't have a way to get a gun. She never could've done this. She's never shown any signs like this; she's never been in a fight," cries Barbara Russell.

Russell says her daughter complained about being picked on for her size. Still, she doesn't believe the girl ever had intentions of following through on the alleged attacked.
