After six years behind bars, 23-year-old Andrew Osantowski is expected to be released this week. In 2004, he was convicted of plotting to kill classmates at Chippewa Valley High School, near Mt. Clemens after sending messages about his plans to an Internet chat room.

The Michigan Supreme Court overturned two lower court rulings and reinstated the decision granting him parole. Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith says he’s outraged.

When contacted by WWJ Newsradio 950, Osantowski’s parents said they’re thrilled that their son would be coming home this week.
