Mosque Bomb Threat Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

24 July 2012 General 5 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – A Texas man accused of making terrorist threats against a local mosque has pleaded not guilty.

Javier Alan Correa turned himself in to U.S. Marshals in Nashville for processing on Monday.

David Boling, the spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Nashville, said Correa was released on his own recognizance. No future hearings have yet been scheduled.

The 23-year-old from Corpus Christi was indicted by a federal grand jury in June. He is accused of threatening to blow up the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

The curse filled message left on a machine at the center said “there’s going to be a bomb in the building.”

Authorities traced the call back to Correa, who lives in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Correa also is charged with violating the civil rights of mosque members by using a threat of force to interfere with the free exercise of their religious beliefs.

He could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

The mosque has been at the center of a fierce debate since 2010. Opponents recently prevailed in a court case that challenged its construction.

  1. But, even more recent than the opponents so-called victory, a federal judge overruled the local judge, allowing the safety inspection and code-pending occupation of the nearly finished mosque, just in time for Ramadan!

    Alhumdillah!!

  2. They should not have released him on his own recognizance. He should sit in jail and be extradited to Tennessee to stand trial. He made a terrorist threat. Folks, I wish you well, peace be with you, blessed Ramadan, and I look forward to seeing your mosque built. Freedom of religion means all religions…

  3. I look forward to seeing pictures of that mosque when it is completed…

  4. Bad-ass turns chicken. What a surprise.

  5. More like dumb -ss don’t you mean Roger….lol. Truly our safety is with Allaah and not any biased, ignorant government.

Have your say!
