NCT 9-1-1

A 19 year old in North College Hill, Ohio was sentenced to 15 months in prison for recruiting a person to make a bogus 9-1-1 call that resulted in the death of a Kansas Man. Swatting is calling 9-1-1 to someone's home for a bogus emergency with the hopes of having S.W.A.T. respond. 9-1-1 should only be used if you are in need of emergency services, and prank calling 9-1-1 can lead to serious consequences.
