Man pleads not guilty of threat

A Texas man accused of making a bomb threat against a Murfreesboro mosque has pleaded not guilty.

Javier Alan Correa turned himself in Monday.

David Boling, the spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Nashville, said Correa was released on his own recognizance. The 23-year-old from Corpus Christi was indicted by a federal grand jury in June. He is accused of threatening to blow up the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Correa also is charged with violating the civil rights of mosque members.
