A New Middletown man has pleaded guilty to making threats towards the Youngstown Jewish Community Center.

According to court officials, a final pretrial hearing was set for Wednesday in U.S. District Court before Judge Patricia Gaughan but James Reardon pleaded guilty.

His sentencing will be on Sept. 22 at 11:30 a.m.

Reardon was charged with transmitting a threatening communication and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

Back in 2019, Reardon had been accused of posting a video to Instagram where he was seen firing a weapon with the caption, "Police identified the Youngstown Jewish Family Community shooter as white nationalist Seamus O'Reardon," designed to look like a mock news headline.

Reardon was arrested following a search of his New Middletown residence where police said they found two AR-15s, a rifle with a bayonet, knives and an anti-tank gun and Nazi memorabilia.
