Bond granted to student charged with bringing gun

A 17-year-old Woodstock High School student charged with bringing an unloaded gun to school has been granted bond of about $36,000 and has agreed to leave Cherokee County until his trial.

A magistrate set the bond for Forrest Busby of Canton on Friday.

Busby's attorney says she expects him to spend the weekend in jail while arrangements are made for a monitoring device.

Defense attorney B.J. Bernstein said Busby will live with his biological mother in Fulton County, pending trial on three felonies and four misdemeanors, stemming from Thursdays lockdown at two Cherokee County schools. Police seized three guns and about 200 rounds of ammunition from his home.

One of the guns was found at the school. Authorities believe all three were stolen by Busbys 15-year-old co-defendant.
