Lawyer: NYer faces new charges in AG threat case

The lawyer for a man accused of making threatening comments about New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo says his client has been indicted on additional charges. Bryan Cameron said Monday he did not know what the new charges were against Jack Geoghan. He said Geoghan, of Bayport, could be arraigned sometime this week.

Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota declined to comment.

Earlier this month, the 45-year-old Geoghan pleaded not guilty to making a terrorist threat and aggravated harassment. He allegedly made a comment about wanting to shoot Cuomo during an angry phone rant to a state office receptionist.

Geoghan is a real-estate appraiser opposed to the attorney general's efforts to reform that industry.
