A Florida county will officially begin punishing the parents of students caught making threats to schools.
Volusia County Sheriff Michael Chitwood says families will be forced to pay for the law enforcement response to the threats.
According to reports, almost a dozen fake threats have been made since 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14.
15 students have been charged by Volusia County deputies for the threats.
Chitwood estimates the costs of the threat response can total almost $1,100.
