The former Mountain Pointe High School student arrested in January for bringing a gun on campus was sentenced Tuesday to intensive probation and a deferred 60-day juvenile detention. Tyrone Cisco, 16 now but 15 at the time of his arrest, admitted in April to bringing a .357 Magnum revolver to school on Jan. 30 before Commissioner R. Jeffrey Woodburn. Admitting to an offense is the juvenile court equivalent of pleading guilty. Woodburn ruled Cisco delinquent on the charges of misconduct involving a weapon, a Class 1 misdemeanor. The 60-day detention period will be deferred pending Cisco's successful completion of probation. Other terms of the intensive probation include going to school or working at least 32 hours per week, residing with and obeying his mother, not associating with gang members and submitting to weekly urinalyses. Cisco was also ordered to complete eight hours of community service by Aug. 8. Cisco was arrested Jan. 30 after Mountain Pointe assistant principal Ian Moses found an unloaded Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum revolver in Cisco's backpack, as well as 10 bullets in two containers in his pockets, police records indicate. Cisco told Mountain Pointe School Resource Officer Mike Leon he had purchased the gun for $175 but declined to say from whom it was purchased, the records show, and Cisco further said that he had brought the gun to school with the intent to sell it. Cisco declined to say to whom he was planning to sell the gun. The Ahwatukee Foothills News has chosen to release the minor's name as a public safety precaution because of this fact. Mountain Pointe Principal Brenda Mayberry sent a letter home with students alerting parents of the incident. Both school officials and police spokesmen stressed that at no point did they believe any student was in danger. Cisco no longer attends Mountain Pointe, but is enrolled in an undisclosed alternative school. Jason Ludwig can be reached at (480) 898-7916 or jludwig@aztrib.com.
