Westchester County man charged with communicating threats

PHILADELPHIA - A Westchester County was indicted on one count of communicating threats, announced United States Attorney’s office in Philadelphia.

After losing civil litigation over a business, Roger Eichenholtz, 70, sent a numbering of harassing e-mails to his opponents threatening further litigation. On September 24, 2013, Eichenholtz sent another e-mail threatening civil and criminal litigation. He concluded the e-mail with the following:

“PLAN B- if for some unforeseen miracle, you escape justice, I have access to a “Side Bolt 45.cal with 6 silver bullets that have your name on them.”

If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum possible sentence of five years of imprisonment, three years of supervised release, a $250,000 fine, and a $100 special assessment.

The case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation
