Man sentenced for threatening to blow up Empire State Building

KINGSTON – A Port Ewen man, who pled guilty in Ulster County Court to hacking into other people’s Facebook accounts and posting bomb threats in the Empire State Building, J. Watson Bailey Middle School and Ulster County Community College, was sentenced Friday to two years in state prison and three years of parole.

The two local schools were evacuated as a result of the threats made by Skyler Eby, 19, who admitted to the incidents in November 2013.

The court also issued orders of protection on behalf of the victims of his crimes.
