Mondovi man found guilty of making bomb threats to Rusk Co. Law Enforcement Center

Rusk County (WQOW) – A Mondovi man was found guilty Tuesday of making bomb threats in Rusk County.

A jury returned guilty verdicts of Dustin Hewitt on four counts of making a bomb scare.

Prosecutors said he made the threats through Facebook and email in 2016 to the Rusk County Law Enforcement Center prompting an evacuation of the courthouse and jail.

He will be sentenced in April.

He made similar threats to the Eau Claire Probation and Parole Office. He was sentenced to three years in prison in that case in May 2018.
