I hope those assholes get CRUSHED. The fake bomb threat alone is an act of terrorism, under the Patriot Act. If it was just an ordinary Joe calling in a fake bomb threat, he would be charged with a felony, and spend a good number of years in jail. His life would effectively be over. Punishment A violation of Florida Statute 790.163 or 790.164 is a second-degree felony which is punishable up to 15 years in prison with a $10,000 fine. A judge cannot withhold adjudication for this crime which means the young person’s job hunting situation will become difficult. Why? When the young person has to fill out applications which ask if he has ever been convicted of a crime, he will have to answer yes. A violation is 790.163 is ranked as level 5 under the Florida Criminal Punishment Code and a violation of 790.164 is ranked as level 6. If any law enforcement responded to the fake bomb threat, the individual can be required to pay restitution to the law enforcement for any costs or damages that happened while responding. If you made the bomb threat over mail, telephone, telegraph, you could be also prosecuted by a federal prosecutor and be convicted of this crime which is punishable up to 10 years in prison. The Double Jeopardy clause of the U.S. Constitution prevents anyone from being charged twice for the same crime. You can, however, be convicted by the State of Florida and the U.S. Federal government for the same fake bomb threat because you are committing a crime against two different sovereign governments.
