Juan Thompson, 32, pleaded guilty Tuesday to cyberstalking and making fake bomb threats
A disgraced journalist pleaded guilty on Tuesday to cyberstalking and making fake bomb threats, admitting he threatened Jewish organizations to harass his ex-girlfriend and cause her ‘great distress.’
‘For this, I deeply apologize,’ said Juan Thompson, 32, who has remained incarcerated since his March arrest.
Former The Intercept writer started his month-long campaign to harass his unidentified ex in July 2016 after she ended their relationship, reported ABC News.
As part of his plea deal in the United States Attorney’s Office Southern District of New York, he admitted to at least a dozen threats to Jewish Community Centers and other Jewish organizations, using the woman’s name.
