OGDEN — The attorney for a teen accused of a bomb plot at Roy High School has requested that prosecutors turn over police interrogation video and audio recordings of his client.
The request is contained in a discovery motion filed in 2nd District Court by Attorney Kristopher K. Greenwood, who is representing 18-year-old Dallin Todd Morgan, of Roy.
“These recordings have not been produced as previously requested,” the motion states. “Please produce these recordings as soon as possible so that we can prepare for the upcoming preliminary hearing.”
Greenwood’s motion also seeks all written statements or confessions allegedly made by Morgan.
Police and prosecutors say Morgan and 16-year-old Joshua Kyler Hoggan planned to detonate a bomb at a Roy High School assembly, steal an airplane at Ogden-Hinckley Airport and flee the country.
Morgan has been charged with possession of a weapon of mass destruction.
Hoggan has been charged with the same offense in juvenile court, and prosecutors are seeking to have him tried as an adult. The offense carries a possible life term in prison.
A status conference for Morgan is scheduled for Thursday before 2nd District Judge Michael Lyon.
Hoggan’s preliminary hearing is set for May 10-11 in 2nd District Juvenile Court.
The purported bomb plot at Roy High was uncovered by school officials Jan. 25.
According to the probable cause affidavit issued with Morgan’s arrest, much of the initial information came from texts Hoggan sent to friends about the alleged plans. At least two students went to school authorities to express concern about the texts, with another dozen coming forward since the news hit the media.
Hoggan also told a police detective he was fascinated by the April 20, 1999, shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo. Hoggan flew to Colorado on Dec. 12, 2011, and interviewed Columbine Principal Frank DeAngelis.
Roy Police Chief Greg Whinham has said the two planned the bombing for sometime in early February.
