NEW YORK -- A US man who reportedly had served in Iraq and Afghanistan was charged Wednesday with making a false bomb threat on a Delta Airlines flight from Paris to the United States.
Derek Stansberry, 27, faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty of interfering with the flight bound to Atlanta, Georgia, on Tuesday and five years for pretending that he had a bomb, the Department of Justice said.
"Making false bomb threats on an aircraft and interfering with the flight crew are serious crimes that have serious consequences," said the US prosecutor for Maine, Paula Silsby.
