ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A former journalist from St. Louis who terrorized his ex-girlfriend and then made bomb threats in her name to Jewish groups is sentenced to five years in prison.

The 32-year old Juan Thompson had admitted in court that he cyber stalked his ex-girlfriend and made phony bomb threats in her name to a dozen Jewish facilities nationwide to retaliate for the breakup. At sentencing, Thompson apologized saying, “These are wounds…that will probably never heal.” His ex-girlfriend, NY social worker Francesca Rossi, says she’s grateful to be alive but “not convinced that he still won’t try to kill me.”

A 2013 Vassar graduate, Thompson wrote for the online publication the Intercept, and was later accused of fabricating an interview with a cousin of Dylan Roof, the SC church shooter.
