BOSTON, Dec 18 (Reuters) - A Harvard University student who told investigators that he had sent hoax e-mails claiming there were bombs planted around the school was released on a $100,000 bond by a federal judge on Wednesday.

The student, 20-year-old Eldo Kim, was charged in U.S. District Court in Boston with making the threat that triggered evacuations on campus. He could face a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years supervised release and a $250,000 fine if convicted. (Reporting Scott Malone; Editing by Richard Valdmanis and Jim Finkle)
