ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. (WCJB) -

The North Central Florida circuit court judge who threw out the case against a teenager accused of planning a school shooting now faces a recall attempt.

Opponents of Eighth Circuit Court Judge Gloria R. Walker, who is based in Alachua County, have started a petition on Change.org.

Saying prosecutors could not prove the threats were "transmitted," Walker dismissed charges against the 15-year-old accused of planning a mass shooting at Baker County High School in Glen St. Mary.

The petition urges state lawmakers to remove Walker, who has five years left in her term.
