By Kentucky News Network
LEXINGTON - A former University of Kentucky student will spend time in prison following social media threats made toward campus.

Twenty-year-old Haily Duvall will spend six months in prison and six months in home incarceration in after pleading guilty in Federal court. 

Duvall will have to report to prison Dec. 2, and she will also be fined $1,800. She will be on probation for two years and six months following home incarceration. 

The former student faced 15 counts related to the social media threats in November 2018. Prosecutors say Duvall used Snapchat to disseminate on-campus threats to other students. 

She would later give an interview to WKYT about the threats just hours before police arrested her after tracing the posts to her.
