A 52-year-old Finley man accused of calling in a bomb threat to Columbia Basin College last month will stay in Franklin County Jail.
Steven Eugene Brown and his court-appointed attorney decided to forego arguing Brown's $150,000 bail Tuesday morning in Franklin County court. Brown's attorney says he needs more time to review the case.
According to CBC, Brown was not a student when he made the threat the morning of July 18th, closing both the Pasco and Richland campuses for the day.
Investigators did not find any explosives on either campus. Both campuses reopened the day after the call.
Brown is charged with one felony count of "Threat to Bomb or Injure Property." He will be back in court August 27th for an omnibus hearing.
His trial is set for September 18th.
