Bail for CSUN student accused of bringing explosives on campus boosted to $1 million
A Cal State Northridge student was being held on $1 million bail after prosecutors charged him with possessing explosive materials and having a firearm on campus.
Officials asked for the high bail given the seriousness of the allegations. His bail was originally $150,000. The student, David Everson, 22, pleaded not guilty.
Everson was charged with two felonies in connection with the case, according to a copy of a criminal complaint filed in San Fernando Superior Court.
The complaint alleges that Everson had the explosive materials with the intent of making a destructive device and that he possessed the weapon while he was on campus. The items were allegedly found in his dorm room, according to authorities.
