ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey judge says he'll decide next week whether a woman accused of tweeting anonymous threats against fellow black college students will be entered into a probation program.
NJ.com reports (http://bit.ly/1N0Ubhh ) defense attorney Thomas Ashley told an Elizabeth judge his client, Kayla-Simone McKelvey, has already resigned from her job and lost her friends.
Ashley is seeking to place McKelvey into a pre-trial intervention program that would allow her to be placed on probation. Charges against her could then be removed from her record.
McKelvey is charged with creating a false public alarm.
County prosecutors say she tweeted anonymous threats from a Kean University library because she wanted more people to attend a November rally on racial issues.
She allegedly returned to the rally to raise awareness about the threats.
