A Cuyahoga County Grand Jury has indicted an attorney from Sagamore Hills Township for making bomb threats in July 2012.
County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty said authorities believe Gregory J. Moore was responsible for bomb threats that forced the evacuation of the old Cuyahoga County Courthouse.
Moore, 40, has been charged with three counts of inducing panic. Those counts are fourth-degree felonies, carrying potential prison terms of six to 18 months.
The indictment charges that after 11 a.m. on July 10, 2012, Moore placed calls to three employees of Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court warning that a bomb would explode at 11:30 a.m.
The courthouse on Lakeside Avenue was evacuated and searched for more than two hours. No explosives were discovered.
Moore is an associate of the Cleveland law firm of Stafford & Stafford, which specializes in domestic relations work.
