Affidavit: SFA student confessed to threats; bond set at $7,500

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A 20-year-old Stephen F. Austin State University student confessed Wednesday to leaving threatening notices on the campus and Grove Apartments, according to an arrest affidavit issued by the SFA University Police.

On April 20, an FBI agent and SFA police officer reviewed logs for the Grove Apartments access gate and noticed Jennifer Grant entered twice between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. on April 16.

Three of the threatening notices were taped in the Human Sciences South building doors and Grant was taking six of her courses in that building.

A possible motive is pointed out in the affidavit, as Grant had a presentation due in her 8 a.m. class on April 16. Grant had been given three extensions by her professor to complete this presentation and she was performing poorly in the class due to missed assignments.

At Grant's arraigment Thursday morning in Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Dorothy Tigner-Thompson's court, bond was set at $7,500. She made arraignments to pay the bond following the arraignment and is no longer in jail.
