Grand jury indicts Maine man for alleged threats against former President Bush
November 11, 1999
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A federal grand jury has indicted a Portland, Maine man on numerous counts of allegedly making bomb threats, including threats against the home of former President George Bush.
Charles Hall, 28, faces up to 150 years in prison if convicted. He is scheduled for arraignment in federal district court in Portland next month.
The Justice Department made the announcement late Wednesday, saying the grand jury issued an 11-count indictment against Hall.
Hall is accused of allegedly making telephone bomb threats against Bush's Kennebunkport home on June 20.
The grand jury also indicted him for allegedly making a bomb threat against an office building as well as the Portland International Airport on June 19. The airport closed temporarily as a result of the threat.
In addition, Hall is accused of sending threatening letters to Jay McCloskey, the U.S. attorney in Maine, whose office was investigating Hall for earlier telephone bomb threats.
No bombs were found in any of the threatened locations.
