BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A former Buffalo State College graduate student is facing up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine after admitting to threatening a number of people.
Prosecutors say Colorado resident Benjamin Bolton, 32, entered the school as a student in Fall of 2013. He was kicked out in April 2014 after a number of disputes with faculty members and other incidents.
In the Summer of 2015, prosecutors say Bolton made a number of calls to Buffalo State employees, including school police officers. During the calls, which went on for months, Bolton threatened to assault faculty, staff and officers he identified by name.
Bolton will be sentenced on December 19.
