The teen, who is thin and wears glasses, said little during an initial court appearance Monday. District Judge David Johnson set bond at $75,000 and the teen's attorney said the family expected to post it by the end of the day for his release.
The judge ordered the teen not to contact anyone at his school, students or teachers, and not to use the Internet without parental supervision.
His attorney, Jeremy Armstrong, declined to discuss specifics of the case, but he did say that the talk of the case he has heard so far was "blown a little out of proportion."
"Our position is that our client had no intention to harm anybody," he said.
Seale is about 80 miles east of Montgomery.
