Man behind Kodak hoax to be sentenced
Rochester, N.Y. (AP) -- A man who called 911 several times to report hoax bomb threats against Kodak faces sentencing Wednesday.
Omer Mohammed could get up to 10 years in prison when he appears in federal court in Rochester.
Mohammed pleaded guilty in December to making false bomb threats.
Authorities said he told 911 dispatchers in September 2012 that his acquaintances were terrorists and were going to blow up the company. He called again four months later to report that an acquaintance had hidden explosives with plans to use them at Kodak.
The calls sent emergency responders to the Rochester campus but no explosives were found.
