BATON ROUGE - A district judge sentenced William Bouvay to more than two decades in jail for calling in a fake bomb threat to LSU.

Bouvay received a 24-year sentence at his hearing Friday morning in Baton Rouge. He pleaded guilty to the charges this past April.

The October 2012 threat caused LSU to issue a rare campus-wide evacuation, and cost the university more than a million dollars.

Investigators said Bouvay called in the threat from a disabled cell phone using its emergency 911 feature.
