ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A 21-year-old Carpentersville man has been charged in the bomb threat incidents that closed three Kane County courthouses earlier this month.

Akiel W. Davis, 21, of the 100 block of Adobe Circle, Carpentersville, was charged with three counts of disorderly conduct. Two of the counts are Class 3 felonies, and one count is a Class 4 felony.

According to the charging documents and law-enforcement authorities, the morning of Sept. 4, Davis reportedly called 911 and falsely stated that four bombs were concealed at the Kane County Judicial Center and reportedly called the Office of the Kane County Circuit Court Clerk and stated that many people in Kane County would die.

Davis appeared this morning in Kane County bond court. Associate Judge Christine Downs set Davis bail at $100,000 (10 percent to apply for bond) and set his next court appearance for 9 a.m. Oct. 3, in courtroom 305 at the Kane County Judicial Center in front of Circuit Judge Susan Clancy Boles. Davis remains in custody at the Kane County Jail.
