Man Charged for Threatening Fargo Synagogue

Posted: Updated:

Federal prosecutors say a man has been arraigned on civil rights and threat charges for threatening a synagogue in Fargo. 

U.S. Attorney Tim Purdon and Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Jocelyn Samuels says Dominique Jason Flanigan was indicted under seal by a grand jury on December 12 on charges of transmitting threatening communication and interfering with a federally protected activity. 

The indictment alleges that Flanigan called Temple Beth El in Fargo in January 2011 and left a voice mail message threatening the employees of the synagogue.

The indictment charges that the threat intimidated and interfered with Temple Beth El employees because of their religion.

Court records show that Flanigan was arrested on Monday. Attorney information for Flanigan was not listed.
