A Harvard University student accused of making bomb threats to get out of a final exam made a brief appearance in federal court in Boston Wednesday morning.
Eldo Kim, 20, is charged with making a bomb hoax.
If convicted, he faces five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Kim had two attorneys with him, but did not enter a plea.
He is due back in court later Wednesday afternoon so prosecutors can ask the judge to hold him without bail at least until a detention hearing can be scheduled.
However, prosecutors and his attorneys are talking about other alternatives.
