Tech student pleads guilty
in bomb case
•ATLANTA - A Georgia Tech student accused of making homemade bombs - one of which exploded and injured a janitor - has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges and will serve probation.
Theodore Hollot, 19, a nuclear and radiological engineering major from McMurray, Pa., entered guilty pleas Wednesday night to reckless conduct and disorderly conduct, said Erik Friedly, a spokesman for the Fulton County District Attorney's Office.
Hollot was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to complete 100 hours of community service.
About 100 students were evacuated from two residence halls Oct. 10 after a janitor picking up trash in the courtyard pulled out a bottle from the bushes and it exploded. The janitor, Stanley Goss, has since recovered.
Two more bottles were found and detonated by Atlanta police. Hollot told police that he threw as many as 12 from his room but retrieved the others after the evacuation, which occurred while he was in class.
