Hotel bomb hoaxer enters guilty plea

A 53-year-old man has admitted calling in a false bomb threat at two Seven Mile Beach resorts. Bernie Williams appeared in Grand Court Friday to enter a guilty plea over the bomb hoax at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman and at the Caribbean Club in December last year. 

Mr. Williams, who is staying at Caribbean Haven to receive treatment for alcohol abuse as part of the conditions of his bail, will be sentenced on March 19.
