According to the Office of the State's Attorney, the telephone charge carries a maximum sentence of three years in jail.
Under the plea deal, Song will serve 200 hours of community service and report to Mental Health Court for status hearings. The state will be recommending three years of supervised probation and that Song remain under the jurisdiction of the Mental Health Court during his probation. He has also been ordered to a daily 9 p.m. curfew and remains banned from the University of Maryland campus.
Song was arrested in March after police say he wrote online that he planned "to kill enough people to make it to national news."
Police say the honors student told officers that he had been under stress. Officers found no weapons in his dorm room or in his parents' house.
He was subsequently barred from campus.
