Nearly two dozen people have urged an Oklahoma judge to impose the maximum sentence for a Bartlesville teenager convicted of plotting an attack at the high school.
    
Nineteen-year-old Sammie Eaglebear Chavez was convicted in September of planning to cause bodily harm at the high school. Authorities accuse Chavez of planning a mass shooting and bombing at the high school, though no such attack occurred.
    
According to court documents obtained by KTUL, a presentence investigation report includes statements from teachers, administrators and parents who urged the maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
    
The jury recommended a 2 ½ year prison term for Chavez. Chavez testified in his own defense and said he was joking about an attack.
    
Sentencing is set for Nov. 12.
