In a surprise move, a Kean University graduate accused of sending Twitter messages threatening black students on campus appeared in court Monday and pleaded guilty to the charge.$82,000! How many iterations of "Would you like fries with that, sir," will it take to pay that off?
Kayla McKelvey, 25, of Union Township, pleaded guilty to a single count of third-degree creating a false public alarm, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park said in a statement.
In exchange for her plea, the prosecutor's office will recommend she receive a 90-day jail sentence, Park said.McKelvey, who is black, must also agree to pay $82,000 in restitution for the police response and investigation of the threats.
Last Thursday, Superior Court Judge William Daniel rejected McKelvey's appeal to be permitted in to a Pre-Trial Intervention Program that would have placed her on probation and could have allowed her to have the charge dropped from her record.
