Missouri college student pleads guilty to campus bomb threat

A student at Lindenwood University in Missouri who tried to get out of school last month by calling in a fake bomb threat has pleaded guilty of making a terrorist threat. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says Lori L. Knight, 38, called university switchboard and told the operator that her brother planned a bombing at the Westport campus in St. Louis. Authorities tracked the call to Knight. Knight told police that she hoped the university would cancel classes for that evening because she wasn’t ready for class.
