BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The Lakota East High School student accused of making threats targeting his classmates was released Thursday on house arrest.

The student faces a felony charge of making terroristic threats.

Defense attorney Rob Dziech unsuccessfully asked a Butler County magistrate in October to release the 15-year-old from juvenile detention to his parents' home.

The student is accused of saying -- on Snapchat -- that he was going to assassinate fellow students and put them into a blender, court records show.

The student's attorney has claimed the student had been bullied. In a statement, Lakota East Principal Suzanna Davis said that school officials cannot address specific allegations, but any allegation of bullying at the school would be "investigated fully."

"Beginning in kindergarten through senior year, students participate in programs to proactively address bullying," she said. "Part of this education involves encouraging students to report any instances of bullying they experience or witness so that district officials can intervene in the best interest of the student. This is an issue we take very seriously."

As of Thursday, the student had been in jail for 26 days since the arrest.

The next pre-trial conference is set for Dec. 8 in Butler County Juvenile Court.
