Beaver Dam Teen Appears on Terrorist Threat Charges

6/27/17 – A Beaver Dam student charged in connection with threats that led to the cancellation of school districtwide last month had a signature bond set at $1000 during an initial appearance in Dodge County court yesterday. Dylan C. Graf is facing one felony count of Making Terrorist Threats. Two minors are also referenced in the criminal complaint but unless charges have been filed in juvenile court, which is not public record, no additional charges have been filed at this time. According to the complaint, Graf and another minor were talking via Skype with a juvenile from Las Vegas. Graf reportedly said that the Las Vegas teen composed a threatening email to an associate principal. The email contained specific threats to fifth period and a button that would detonate several explosive materials in the school. He initially denied to investigators that he was involved and said it was a prank. The 17-year-old later reportedly admitted to having some input in the email. If convicted, Graf faces up to three and a half years in prison. A preliminary hearing is on the calendar in August.
