BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 42-year-old Baton Rouge man accused of calling in a bomb threat to LSU on Sept. 17 has been charged in state court.
The Advocate reports the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's Office filed a one-count bill of information Wednesday charging William Bouvay Jr. with communicating false information of a planned bombing on school property.
The felony charge carries a maximum prison term of 20 years.
District Attorney Hillar Moore said Bouvay will be arraigned on the charge Friday.
A federal grand jury in Baton Rouge indicted Bouvay on Sept. 20 on one count of willfully conveying false information concerning the attempt to destroy property by means of explosives.
If convicted, Bouvay faces up to 10 years in prison.
