British teen gets three years for bogus threats
LONDON — A British teenager has been sent to jail for three years after his bogus bomb threats led to school evacuations and an airport security incident.
George Dukecohan, 19, touched off panic in March when he emailed thousands of schools, warning about an explosive. More than 400 schools were evacuated.
He later caused a scare by telephoning San Francisco Airport and claiming that his daughter had contacted him while on a United Airlines flight to say her plane had been hijacked.
