Arraignment For William Bouvay Delayed
The arraignment for William Bouvay, Jr., the man accused of phoning in a bomb threat that shut down the LSU campus last month, has been pushed back to Thursday, October 11th.
Bouvay was already indicted by a federal grand jury in Baton Rouge on September 20 for allegedly making the bomb threat, a charge that carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison if convicted. This latest charges carries a maximum sentence of 20 years.
Bouvay was arrested just days after he made the alleged call, which police say was done from a cell phone on Skysail Avenue in Baton Rouge, where authorities say they found Bouvay. Police say Bouvay eventually confessed to making the call and told them where they could find the cell phone he used to make the bomb threat.
