A Big Spring man has pleaded guilty in connection with a bomb threat hoax.

Jordan Weston Hamilton pleaded guilty to the federal charge of false information and hoaxes, stemming from a bomb threat he made in December of 2012.

The 24-year-old Hamilton admits that he called the Howard County 9-1-1 emergency call center on December 17th, 2012, and stated that there was a bomb located in a science room at Big Spring High School. No bomb was found.

A sentencing date has not yet been set. Hamilton remains in custody, and faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Lubbock.
