Hawaii Student Avoids Prison In Boston Airport Scare

MIT Student Must Perform Community Service Including Time With Veterans

HONOLULU -- A college student from Maui avoided prison time Monday and got probation for creating a bomb scare at Boston's Logan Airport last fall.

Last September, Massachusetts Institute of Technology sophomore Star Simpson entered Logan Airport and asked about an incoming flight wearing a circuit board with wires connected to a battery on her shirt.

Boston police surrounded her at gunpoint. Authorities charged her with possession of a hoax device.

"They dropped the only charge that was pending against Star, they dismissed it," defense attorney Serina Barkley said.

Simpson's lawyers handled her case pro-bono.

Sustained applause.

Way to go, Counselor! Well done.

I have sent this note along to Star...

Hi Star,

It occurs to me that you might be interested in joining with me as a Volunteer in the Boston Museum of Science. I've been doing this for 20 years now, and I love it.

If you can commit 4 hours a week, we'd love to have you in Cahners Computer Place (where I volunteer every Saturday afternoon) or in any of the many other interesting locales in the Museum.

It's a great way to give something of value back to community, and you'll meet many fine people there who are able to appreciate your considerable talents as a role model for young people interested in science and technology.
