W. Frankfort Man Indicted for Alleged Threats Made Against Franklin Co. Officials

Jun 24, 2019

A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging a West Frankfort man in the October 2014 mailing of two threatening letters to officials in Franklin County.

The indictment claims while incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Center in Allenwood, Pennsylvania, 43-year-old Jonathan Wade Bohn sent a letter threatening to kill certain Franklin County law enforcement officers and officials.

Two weeks later, he is accused of sending another threatening letter, this time to the Franklin County clerk of court, claiming there was a bomb inside a Franklin County school that would detonate the following day.
Mailing a threatening communication carries a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison. Threatening to use an explosive device is punishable by as much as 10 years in prison.

According to the Bureau of Prisons website, Bohn is now being housed at a high-security facility in Florida and is currently scheduled for release in August 2022.
