Man Who Alleged Bomb Threat on Sears Tower Pleads Guilty

Adam Hart pleaded guilty in Boston yesterday to one count of maliciously conveying false information. The 22-year-old is scheduled to be sentenced on October 16th and could get up to ten years.

Hart was a student at the University of Massachusetts in 2006 when he sent an e-mail to the National Security Agency. He claimed that a University of Chicago student he met on the Facebook online site was planning to detonate a bomb at the skyscraper.

The hoax prompted increased security at the building and an investigation of the person Hart identified. Authorities discovered that Hart had sent e-mails containing racial slurs.
