Inmate Admits Mailing Bomb Threat to Federal Agency

September 03, 2009  | 

Inmate Glen Sharkany, 40, pleaded guilty today before U.S. District Judge Stefan R. Underhill in Bridgeport, Conn., to one count of conveying false information through the postal system, U.S. Attorney Nora R. Dannehy announced.

According to documents filed with the court and statements made in court, on approximately Sept. 29, 2008, Sharkany sent a letter to the Social Security Administration in Norwalk, Conn., in which he had placed a diagram of an explosive device that included the words, "I'm going to blow up your office and the IRS office as well."

Sharkany is an inmate at the Garner Correctional Institution in Newtown, Conn.

Judge Underhill has scheduled sentencing for Nov. 20, at which time Sharkany faces a maximum prison term of five years and a fine of up to $250,000.
