The Utica College student accused of making threats against the college last month has been indicted by an Oneida County Grand Jury.

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.
