Joseph Morales was taken into custody by the FBI on a charge of cyberbullying. He threatened a gay activist through a post on Twitter and made a reference to the Boston Marathon bombing. The man threatened, Pedro Julio Serrano, claimed to not know Morales, but states that Morales may be the author of previous hate messages as well.
Morales has acknowledged he posted a Twitter message in Spanish that included the words “watch out during the demonstration, it can end like in Boston,” the FBI said in a statement. Morales currently does not have a lawyer and does not have a plea either. The maximum punishment for this threat is 5 years in jail.
