John Martin Roos appeared in federal court Wednesday afternoon. He’s facing 10 federal charges including 8 counts of threats against the President of the United States, and 2 counts of threats against federal law enforcement.
Roos was arrested at his Poplar Village apartment last month, following an investigation by the FBI. During a search of his home, police say they also found a homemade bomb.
Roos has pleaded not guilty to all charges, and is scheduled to go on trial July 19th. He remains in the Jackson County Jail tonight, without bail.
