A New Jersey judge sentenced an African-American Kean University graduate to 90 days in jail and five years probation Friday for posting threatening tweets about killing black students at the school, according to the New Jersey Star-Ledger
Kayla McKelvey was accused of creating a Twitter account and tweeting the threats in order to draw attention to a protest of alleged racism on campus. 
McKelvey admitted to writing the tweets and said she did so because she wanted to raise awareness about racism at the school.
According to the Star-Ledger, McKelvey, 25, said she “made a poor error in judgment to shine a light on an issue that is important to me.”
