WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A former Assumption College student accused of making a bomb threat on campus in 2011 has been sentenced to two years of probation.

The Telegram & Gazette reports (https://goo.gl/eY44dZ ) a judge on Tuesday also banned 26-year-old Kevin Forts, of Shrewsbury, from any Assumption College events and ordered him to continue with mental health and substance abuse treatment.

Police responded to the college in 2011 after school officials found documents containing threatening literature and the manifesto of Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway. A Norwegian newspaper that year published an interview in which Forts defends Breivik.

Forts’s attorney says Forts was an “impressionable young man” then. He says Forts has since graduated from Worcester State University and has been accepted to Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island.
