A Hanover Park teen has been sentenced to probation and time served in jail for making a false bomb threat at Lake Park High School's east campus in Roselle.
Sharell Thomas, 19, of the 7500 block of Bristol Lane, pleaded guilty Friday to felony disorderly conduct. She was sentenced by DuPage County Judge Robert Kleeman to two years of probation and jail time served since early May, court records show.

Thomas was charged in November after Lake Park officials received a phone call from someone warning there was a bomb at the east campus. The school was locked down and students were sent home early while investigators swept for explosive devices.
Police said Thomas was among four students, including two juveniles from Hanover Park and Hoffman Estates and an 18-year-old woman from Hanover Park, who made false bomb threats to their schools on the same day to avoid going to class.
Thomas could have faced up to five years in prison if convicted at trial. As a condition of her probation term, she must be employed or continuing her education, according to court records.
