AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Prosecutors dropped the charges against a former Texas State University student accused of threatening to bomb the campus this past fall.
Hays County assistant district attorney Fred Weber told the Austin American-Statesman (http://bit.ly/166eOPE ) Friday there wasn't sufficient evidence to proceed with the case against 19-year-old Brittany Henderson.
Two days after local authorities took her into custody in the Oct. 18 hoax, the FBI said it had arrested her ex-boyfriend. But Henderson still spent more than a month in jail before her December release on a reduced bond.
A federal criminal complaint says Dereon Kelley accessed Henderson's email to send bomb threats to Texas State on Oct. 18 and Texas A&M on Oct. 19. He faces up to 10 years in prison on a federal felony charge.
