EUGENE, Ore. — The man accused of threatening to blow up the downtown Eugene Post Office apologized in court Thursday.
That’s when Patrick Smoley went before a federal judge.
He faces charges of willfully using a phone to do harm.
Smoley waived his preliminary examination, but he did prepare a statement that his attorney read before the judge.
He says he apologizes to the community and regrets scaring people.
He wrote that he had no intention of setting off a bomb, but that he was desperate about his health.
Smoley’s scheduled to be arraigned on Jan. 10.
