A judge has ordered 18-year-old Justin Olsen of Boardman to remain in custody.

According to court documents, the judge found that "there is a serious risk that the defendant will endanger the safety of another person or the community" if he was released.

Olsen appeared in federal court Friday afternoon regarding his potential release.

The two and a half-hour court session featured multiple testimonies, including statements from Olsen's parents.

A special agent also took the stand Friday saying that Olsen posted threats online only two weeks after turning 18.

According to the agent's testimony, Olsen posted online, "In conclusion, shoot every federal agent on sight."

The agent also said Olsen commented about shooting up a gay bar, Planned Parenthood and plans to "start stockpiling weapons."

His testimony also said that Olsen had a machete in the trunk of his car, and located at Olsen's father's home were thousands of rounds of ammunition, 26 firearms in a safe, two outside of the safe, camouflage clothing and a 4-5 inch binder with documents regarding school shootings.

Olsen's father, Eric Olsen, testified that those items were all his and that he is employed at Howland Schools. He also said that he is an "avid shooter" and competes in shooting events.

Olsen's father also said that he was involved in developing an active shooter response plan for Howland Schools.

Olsen's mother, Melanie Olsen, testified she is a licensed counselor and that she was never concerned her son would carry out violence in his community.

She said that she has had arguments with her son over his "ideology" and may have previously said she was concerned about his mental health, but did not believe he was mentally ill and stressed she was "never concerned he would carry out violence in his community" only "concerned that developing extreme anti-social views would not work well for him in the world" and that "socially he wouldn't fit into the world."

Both parents testified they were not aware of Justin's posts online.

As for the machete in the trunk, Olsen's father also testified that he owned the large knife and that it was last used, to his knowledge, to clear a path to a deer stand.

21 News asked attorney Justin Markota, with Betras Kopp and Harshman, to weigh-in on how Eric Olsen's testimony that his son did not acquire the guns and had limited access to the weapons could impact the prosecution's case.

Markota said the testimony extinguishes much of the argument that Olsen had any plan and now it becomes a battle over freedom of speech.

"As far as the evidence has shown, so far, there was no allegation of a specific threat to one agent in particular or a time or plan of how to do it. So it's a First Amendment toss up on whether this type of language, which we presume is protected under the Constitution, amounts to criminal conduct," said Markota.

The judge determined that if Olsen was released from federal custody, there is a serious safety risk. The judge notes in his ruling several of Olsen's online posts, his access to weapons and increase in online followers.
