Queensbury Man Pleads Guilty to Bomb Threats, But Still Maintains Innocence

A Queensbury man pleads guilty to emailing bomb threats but still maintains his innocence

Darrell Royce is charged with two counts of making terroristic threats, to Queensbury schools and the Warren County Municipal Center, which caused the evacuation of five buildings in 2017.

Police traced the internet address of the emails to his home, but couldn't identify a device they came from.

However, Royce still entered an Alford Plea, which allowed him to plead guilty without admitting guilt to a misdemeanor count of falsely reporting an incident because he didn't want to take the chance that a jury would find him guilty and face a maximum sentence of 14 years.

He's expecting to get 60 days in jail, followed by three years of probation.
