LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– A UK student accused of making a threat that involved UK’s White Hall classroom building has been released from federal custody.

Judge Matthew A. Stinnett said that he doesn’t believe 19-year-old Haily Duvall is a danger to anyone and he believes that she will not flee.

Duvall pleaded not guilty to the charges of terroristic threatening and falsely reporting an incident.

Students at the university, including Duvall herself, sent LEX 18 screenshots of the Snapchats. One read, “White Hall is about to be white ashes along with every *expletive* student in it.” Another said, “Thirsty Thursdays are about become ticking time bomb Thursdays.”

The conditions of Duvall’s release from federal custody are that she must check in with a probation officer, she must continue or actively seek employment, she must surrender her passport, she cannot apply for a passport. She can only travel in the Eastern District of Kentucky, she must seek mental health treatment, she cannot have a gun or be in a home with a gun, she cannot have alcohol, she cannot use or possess illegal narcotics, she must submit to drug testing. She cannot use social media and she must be on home detention with no GPS monitoring.
