Spurned Lover Gets House Detention, Probation for Making Bomb Threats
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) _ A man who made bomb threats to Delta Airlines to get back at a woman who jilted him was sentenced Wednesday to house detention and probation.
U.S. District Judge Vincent Broderick called the offense ″extremely serious″ and told Scott Eisenberger he had considered a more stringent sentence.
Because of Eisenberger’s mental condition, Broderick sentenced him to six months of house detention and 2 1/2 years probation, with psychiatric care as a condition, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Kerry Lawrence.
Broderick also ordered Eisenberger to pay $10,216 to Delta.
The 28-year-old accountant pleaded guilty to making two bomb threats in May after a woman he dated briefly dropped him.
Eisenberger is awaiting sentencing on state charges for harassing the woman.
