Anti-Semitic bomb threat suspect Juan Thompson pleads not guilty

The spurned ex-reporter suspected of threatening Jewish community centers to exact revenge on his ex-lover pleaded not guilty Monday.

Juan Thompson is accused of hitting eight JCCs with anti-Semitic bomb threats from Jan. 28 to Feb. 22.

Thompson intended for his cyber-stalking crusade to destroy his former girlfriend’s life, the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office has said.

When Manhattan Federal Judge Kevin Castel asked Thompson his plea, the St. Louis resident plainly replied “Not guilty.”

The evidence against Thompson includes 25 electronic devices the feds took from his home — such as laptops, cell phones and tablets, said Jacob Warren, the prosecutor handling the case.

The feds are also executing search warrants on email and Twitter accounts linked to Thompson, 32, Warren said.
