Harvard student charged in bomb hoax released on bail
The student, 20-year-old Eldo Kim, was charged in U.S. District Court in Boston with making the e-mailed threat that triggered evacuations on campus. If convicted, he could face a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years supervised release and a $250,000 fine.
"Kim stated that he was in Emerson Hall at 9:00 a.m. when the fire alarm sounded and the building was evacuated," said an affidavit by the FBI agent. "According to Kim, upon hearing the alarm, he knew that his plan had worked."
An attorney representing Kim, Allison Burr, declined any comment to reporters after the proceeding.One observer said it was unusual to see federal, rather than state or local, prosecutors take on a hoax case at a university, but that their involvement likely reflected the costs and high visibility of the massive law-enforcement response, as well as post-9/11 and post-marathon jitters.
Late last month, Yale University in New Haven, Conn., placed its campus on lockdown for almost a day after an anonymous caller warned officials that his roommate was headed to the Ivy League school and planning to shoot people. No gunman was found, and police now regard the incident as a hoax.
