Girl receives felony charge over science project

Girl receives felony charge over science project

Read the link above.

She mixed toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum foil in a plastic bottle.  It exploded.  No one was injured.  She alleges it was for a science fair project.  The school expels her.  She’s arrested for possession / discharge of a weapon.  She is now facing a felony.  She’s 15.

Do you think this is a fair charge if you consider the wording of the Florida statute?  What do you think would be mitigating facts (if any)?  What about an affirmative defense?
