NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A federal judge has agreed to dismiss the indictment against a former Loyola University student charged with sending threatening emails to the campus police department in 2011.
Prosecutors requested the dismissal of the indictment on Friday, saying Evelyn A. Hubbard, of New Orleans, has successfully completed a yearlong pretrial diversion program.
Hubbard was 21 years old when she was charged with one count of making threatening interstate communications.
Prosecutors said one of the emails from Hubbard threatened to blow up a building where she was scheduled to take a test on the morning she sent it. Another email she allegedly sent threatened five unnamed professors and called for the building to be evacuated.
Prosecutors said Hubbard told FBI agents she sent the emails as a joke.
