(KNZA) The Ohio man charged in May's bomb threat at Highland Community College will have to serve 60 days in jail and pay $36,000 restitution to the college.

According to, 21-year-old D’Vonte Guyton was sentenced Monday in Doniphan County District Court on a felony charge of criminal threat.

After serving the jail time, Guyton will be placed on supervised probation for one year.

He pleaded no contest to the amended charge in September.

The bomb threat, which was received by telephone on May 9, led to the evacuation of the Highland campus and to the postponement of finals for students.

No explosive device was discovered following a search of the campus and its buildings by law enforcement.

Authorities were able to trace the call to an address in North College Hill, Ohio.

Guyton, who was an on-line student at Highland, later turned himself in to police.

Snow showers will start just after rush hour on Monday morning and will taper off in the early afternoon. These will be on the lighter side and will only produce a dusting to maybe an inch. Highs will be in the middle to upper teens with winds out of the north. Temperatures will remain cold through the first half of the week but by midweek we could be seeing a slight warm up and another chance for some wintry precipitation.
