The U.S. attorney’s office has charged a 20-year-old Harvard University student who emailed a bomb threat to campus officials and the student newspaper, CBS Boston reported. The incident led administrators to shut down campus and cancel classes (and scheduled exams) Monday, before local and state police and authorities from the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced that the four supposedly targeted buildings were clear. Eldo Kim of Cambridge, charged under the bomb hoax statute, will appear in court Wednesday and faces a maximum of five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.
