Fahrudin Omerovic has been indicted on two charges of felony making a terroristic threat, according to Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara.

Omerovic is accused of making threatening phone calls against Utica College on March 5-6, leading to the school being on lockdown for several hours with a heavy police presence of March 5.

McNamara says that if Omerovic is ultimately convicted, each charge could lead to a two- to four-year prison sentence. The maximum time he would serve is 14 years.

Omerovic could be arraigned next week, but a date has not yet been set.
