SALEM, Ore. -A nursing student will spend two months in jail for telephoning bogus threats so she wouldn't have to take exams.
Danielle Sylvia pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, menacing and initiating a false report. In addition to jail, the judge ordered her to stay away from Chemeketa Community College campuses.
Prosecutors say to avoid taking two tests, Sylvia anonymously called a Portland television station in February, warning that a bomb would go off at an unspecified Chemeketa campus. That prompted evacuations and educators to cancel classes at the Salem, Yamhill, Woodburn and McMinnville campuses. Later that month, prosecutors say Sylvia called a radio station and warned that a shooting would happen in a building on the Salem campus, causing that building to be evacuated.
