ST. CHARLES, Mo. – A woman who called in a bomb threat to Lindenwood University last year has been sentenced.
Lori Knight was taken into custody after bomb threats were called into two Lindenwood campuses in May 2013. Authorities say Knight called Lindenwood's switchboard from a blocked phone line and saying her brother planned to bomb the Westport campus.
Police traced the call to Knight, who said she made the call because she wasn't prepared for class.
In June, 38-year-old Knight of St. Louis pleaded guilty to one charge of making a terrorist threat.
On Monday, Knight was given a three year suspended sentenced and five years of probation.
