A 64-year old New Mexico woman has pleaded not guilty to federal charges alleging that she called in a bomb threat during a Montana Trappers Association banquet in May at the Frontier Events Center.
Dora Sandra Gomez, of Albuquerque, entered the plea to the charges of issuing false information and hoaxes in U.S. District Court in Missoula on Oct. 14, according to the U.S. attorney's office.
Charging documents do not indicate how the FBI identified Gomez or how she was arrested and brought into custody. Gomez has been released pending further proceedings. A trial date has been set for December 20 before U.S. District Judge Dana L. Christensen in Missoula.
If convicted, Gomez faces a maximum five years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.
