Man who threatened synagogue in North Dakota charged with crime

WASHINGTON – Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Jocelyn Samuels and U.S. Attorney for the District of North Dakota Timothy Q. Purdon announced that Dominique Jason Flanigan was arraigned today on civil rights and threats charges.

Flanigan was indicted under seal by a grand jury on December 12, 2012, for threatening a synagogue in Fargo, North Dakota. The two-count indictment charges Flanigan with issuing a threatening interstate communication and with interfering with a federally protected activity. The indictment was unsealed prior to his arraignment.

The indictment alleges that, on January 4, 2011, Flanigan called Temple Beth El in Fargo and left a voicemail message threatening the employees of the synagogue. The indictment charges that this threat intimidated and interfered with Temple Beth El employees because of their religion.

An indictment is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
