Former Kean University Student Face 90 Days in Jail for Tweeting Fake Threats Against Fellow Black College Students
Donkey of the year, Kayla McKelvey, a former Kean University student and Black Student Leader, pleaded guilty Monday to creating a false public alarm which could lead to 90 days in jail plus restitution.
Prosecutors said the 25-year-old McKelvey tweeted threats from a campus library because she wanted more people to attend a November 2015 rally on racial issues. She then returned to the rally to tell people about the threats.
The state is also recommending she pay $82,000 to cover the police response and heightened security caused by the threats.
