Man Pleads Guilty For Bomb Threats
Jake Brahm of Wauwatosa, Wis., pleaded guilty February 28th to posting false threats over the Internet that "dirty bombs" would be detonated at seven stadiums hosting NFL games on October 22, 2006.
The former grocery store clerk was charged with one count of conveying false and misleading information for posting a message 40 times between September and October 2006 that stadiums in or near Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Cleveland, New York and Oakland, Calif., would be attacked, according to Reuters.
Brahm claimed the bombs would be delivered by trucks and the attack eventually celebrated by Osama bin Laden as "America’s Hiroshima." He predicted the terrorists’ weapons of mass destruction and "radiological dispersal devices" would cause nearly 100,000 deaths.
Now free on bail, Brahm will go back to court for sentencing June 5th and could face up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,000, according to Reuters.
