The man who made headlines nationwide for writing a bomb threat on the back of a job application was back in court Monday.

Jason Dornhoff of Heartwell, Neb. was jailed in July after he turned in a restaurant job application with his information and a bomb threat written on it. Police did not find a bomb when they arrested him, but Dornhoff is charged with one count of threatening to commit a crime to terrorize another and one count of threatening to use explosives. Each felony charge carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

Dornhoff waived his right to his preliminary hearing Monday, so the case is now in the hands of the district court. He continues to be out on bond. Dornhoff wanted to speak with 10/11 News, but his public defender advised him against it, pending the conclusion of his case.
