Denzel Horne, 21, of Newton was sentenced last month to 2 1/2 years in a house of correction with one year to serve and the balance suspended for five years, Newton Patch reported last month. Horne was found guilty of a bomb threat at Newton North High School in 2007.

Note: Thanks to Mike Striar for calling this to our attention, writing:

I am mystified as to why this case was viewed as anything more than a student prank, akin to the many false fire alarms for which no one ever seems to get arrested, let alone prosecuted. While a school suspension was certainly in order, terrorism charges seemed more than overblown. Denzel’s first trial resulted in a hung jury. Yet the Commonwealth decided to go for a second trial, which resulted in a guilty finding, and Denzel was sentenced to the House of Correction for at least one year, where the now 22 year old currently resides.
