BOSTON (Reuters) - A Harvard University student charged with making a hoax bomb threat to avoid taking a final exam was released on a $100,000 bond by a federal judge on Wednesday.
Investigators said Eldo Kim, 20, admitted to making the e-mailed threat that triggered evacuations on campus. Kim was charged in U.S. District Court in Boston and if convicted, he could be sentenced to as long as five years in prison, three years supervised release and a $250,000 fine.
