Man Who Admitted To Making LSU Bomb Threat Gets Harsh Sentence

43-year-old William Bouvay Jr., the man who pleaded guilty to calling in a bomb threat to LSU’s campus last year, has been sentenced to 24 years in prison without the possibility of parole.

The bomb scare caused a total evacuation of the Baton Rouge campus on September 17, as well as traffic lockups all over Baton Rouge. The fake bomb threat cost LSU $1.4 million.

It’s because of that huge cost, and the fact that Bouvay is a 3-time convicted felon, that District Court Judge Lou Daniel gave him the harsh sentence, calling Bouvay’s actions cowardly and shameful. East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore says Moore is “a two-time prior felon, one from out of state of a financial crime and one from Baton Rouge where he was convicted of a domestic violence charge.”

Police say Bouvay was caught after the cell phone used to call in the bomb threat was traced to Bouvay. He was arrested just days after he made the call.
