What am I facing if charged with this offense?
If you are convicted, you could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison, and the penalties only increase if you are also charged with planting a hoax bomb. It is also likely that you will have to pay for any damage it is alleged that your actions caused, including reimbursing the city for the cost of dispatching any emergency personnel. For a charge that frequently results from a misunderstanding, a prank gone wrong, or a case of mistaken identity, the penalties can be outlandishly severe.
