BATON ROUGE- A 42-year-old Baton Rouge man accused of calling in a bomb threat to LSU on Sept. 17 has pleaded not guilty to federal charges.

The Advocate reports U.S. Magistrate Judge Docia Dalby ordered William Bouvay Jr. to be held, without bond, in federal custody at the West Baton Rouge Parish Prison until his trial in December.

A federal grand jury in Baton Rouge indicted Bouvay on Sept. 20 on one count of willfully conveying false information concerning the attempt to destroy property by means of explosives.

Bouvay faces a similar charge of communicating false information of a planned bombing on school property in 19th Judicial District Court, where he also is targeted for probation revocation on his guilty plea to a charge of domestic abuse/battery.
