SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A nursing student who prosecutors say was trying to avoid taking two tests has pleaded guilty to calling in fake threats that prompted evacuations at an Oregon community college.
Danielle Sylvia of Salem pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts each of disorderly conduct, menacing and initiating a false report and was sentenced to 60 days in jail. She was also ordered to stay away from Chemeketa (sha-MEK-ah-tuh) Community College campuses.
The 27-year-old woman apologized in court.
The Statesman Journal reports (http://is.gd/H6JNnu) that on Feb. 13, Sylvia anonymously called a Portland television station, warning that a bomb would go off at an unspecified Chemeketa campus. That prompted evacuations and class cancellations at the Salem, Yamhill, Woodburn and McMinnville campuses. On Feb. 27, Sylvia called a radio station to say that a shooting would happen in a building on the Salem campus, causing that building to be evacuated.
