The Norwalk Middle School students suspended last week for threatening another student have been released on house arrest.
The two 14-year-old eighth-graders denied the charge of aggravated menacing, a first-degree misdemeanor.
One had already requested an attorney, the other had not done so at his arrest, but did so at the hearing.
The court entered a denial on his behalf.
Phil Charville, chief probation officer, reported that both behaved respectfully in the Sandusky County Detention Center each with only one "minor infraction" one had paper in his room, the other, a comb, which he was using as a bookmark in his Bible.
Each was released to his parents under terms of house arrest, 24-hour adult supervision, and a long no-contact list.
Both still await an expulsion hearing.
