John Daniel Nego has been found guilty of terroristic conduct as a third degree felony.

Nego faces up to 25 years behind bars. The guilty conviction also includes two counts of attempted violation of court order as a misdemeanor.

Nego was charged with terroristic conduct after he called in a bomb threat to an elementary school where his ex-girlfriend worked, further violating a court stay away order.

According to prosecuting attorney Cristine Tenorio, bomb threats are taken extremely serious by the Office of the Attorney General.

“When these threats are made to our schools, it puts our children’s safety at risk and is disruptive to their education,” Tenorio said.

Nego is scheduled to be sentenced on July 2.
