CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) – The defense attorney for a teenager accused of plotting to bomb West Albany High School will ask to exclude all evidence obtained by police, including interviews.

A lawyer for Grant Acord filed the paperwork last month in Benton County Circuit Court.

The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports attorney Jennifer Nash called the searches and interviews of the 17-year-old illegal, says his stop by police was illegal and says he was never read his Miranda rights.

A hearing is scheduled for May 27, six days before Acord’s trial.

Albany police arrested Acord on May 23 after receiving a tip that he planned to attack the school.
