Spurned Lover Gets House Detention, Probation for Making Bomb Threats

August 7, 1991

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.
