Man Accused of Threatening LGBT Community in Wilton Manors Indicted

The man accused of making threats of a Pulse nightclub-style attack against the LGBT community in Wilton Manors was indicted Thursday for posting threatening communications, officials said.

Craig Allen Jungwirth, 50, is charged with the interstate transmission of a threatening communication, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.

Jungwirth was arrested by the FBI in Orlando earlier this month and remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshal's Service. He's expected to be brought to South Florida to face the charge.

Jungwirth allegedly posted on social media threatening to launch a Pulse nightclub-type attack over Labor Day weekend.

"It's time to clean up Wilton Manors from all you AIDS-infested losers," Jungwirth allegedly wrote in one Facebook post.

"If you losers thought the Pulse Nightclub shooting was bad, wait 'til you see what I'm planning for Labor Day," he allegedly wrote in another.

Jungwirth denied posting the threats when he was questioned by investigators, according to a criminal complaint.

If convicted, Jungwirth faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison, three years of supervised release, and up to a $250,000 fine, officials said.
