Student activist gets 90 days in jail for fake racial threats on Twitter

 

A University student received a 90-day county jail sentence, along with five years’ probation, and must pay over $82,000 in restitution for making threats against black students at protests she attended, with the aim of stoking racial tensions.
Kayla McKelvey, a black student at Kean University, pleaded guilty to causing a false public alarm by creating a fake Twitter account that she then used to threaten the very protests she was attending, News 12 New Jerseyreported. In November, McKelvey tweeted out multiple threats directed at black students attending the rally.
