CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – A West Virginia man has pleaded guilty to making a bomb threat at a high school.
U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart on Wednesday announced that 24-year-old William Lee McCallister admitted to threatening to set off a bomb at Lincoln County High School.
Stuart says McCallister made the threat on the social media app Snapchat. Authorities say he stated he would plant a bomb on a trail behind the school and detonate it in January.
He faces up to a decade in prison at his December sentencing.
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives assisted the state police with the investigation.
