Jewish center bomb threats: St. Louis ex-journalist pleads guilty

An ex-journalist pleaded guilty in a Manhattan court Tuesday to counts of cyberstalking and conveying false information in connection to a string of bomb threats targeting Jewish community centers nationwide, local media reported.

Juan Thompson, 31, was suspected in at least eight bomb threats against community centers in Michigan, Texas, California and New York. Thompson made the threats to disparage his ex-girlfriend, federal officials said.
