John Nego Faces Jail Time for Calling in Bomb Threat

John Daniel Nego was found guilty of Terroristic Conduct as a Third Degree Felony and two counts of Attempted Violation of Court Order as Misdemeanor.

The defendant called in a bomb threat to an elementary school where his ex-girlfriend worked in an attempt to contact her despite being ordered to stay away.

“Bomb threats are taken extremely serious by the AG’s office. When these threats are made to our schools, it puts our children’s safety at risk and is disruptive to their education,” said Prosecuting Attorney Cristine Tenorio.

 “Our office would like to thank the Department of Education personnel for their swift action,” she finished.  

He will be sentenced on July 2, 2019, and faces up to 25 years imprisonment.
