Former CCSU Student’s Sentence

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP)  – A Connecticut judge has approved accelerated rehabilitation for a former Central Connecticut State University student who triggered a campus lock down last November.

Police say David Kyem who was a student at the school at the time and is the son of a professor there, caused the scare by wearing a ninja Halloween costume on campus.  He was also reportedly wearing a sword and carrying a BB gun.

There was a massive police response during the lock down that lasted several hours.

Kyem pleaded not guilty in February to misdemeanor charges, including breach of peace.

The rehabilitation program is for first-time offenders and can result in charges being dismissed after a probation period.
