Woman Charged With Bomb Threat
(2007-02-22)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - A Birmingham woman accused of threatening to blow up a school in Jefferson County is out of jail on three-thousand dollars bond.

Jefferson County Sheriff's detectives recently arrested 38-year-old Cathy Nijim and charged her with making a terrorist threat.

According to a statement, Nijim is a parent who allegedly made the bomb threat last October. But it did not state which county school was targeted. Deputies said bomb-detection dogs searched the school and found nothing.

Under Alabama law, making a terrorist threat is a Class C felony, which is punishable by one-to-ten years in prison.
