Indiana man faces more charges in Facebook threat case

May 21, 2015

A federal grand jury has issued a second indictment with more charges against an Indiana man accused of threatening to blow up a courthouse and kill judges in a Facebook posting.

The Lafayette Journal & Courier reports 23-year-old Samuel Bradbury of Pine Village also claimed to run an anarchist group that commanded a couple to kill two Las Vegas police officers last June.

Bradbury is charged with threatening to use fire or explosives. He now faces a new charge of maliciously conveying false information concerning the use of fire or explosives.

His defense attorney is asking a judge to reject the new charges she argues are redundant. She says it places her client at risk of being convicted on multiple counts for the same alleged crime.
