      WASHINGTON, Nov. 9 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The Justice Department today
      announced that Michael Bratisax pleaded guilty in the U.S. District
      Court for the Eastern District of Michigan to violating the civil
      rights of members of the Islamic Center of America, located in
      Detroit, Michigan.

      In May 2004, Bratisax sent an e-mail from his home computer in New
      York to the Islamic Center of America threatening to kill Muslims.
      Bratisax made this threat with the intent to intimidate and frighten
      the members of the Islamic Center from practicing their religion.

      "The Justice Department is committed to protecting our diverse
      religious heritage against acts of criminal bigotry," said Wan J. Kim,
      Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division. "All
      American families have the right to worship where they choose,
      undisturbed by intimidation and racist threats."

      The guilty plea results from an investigation by the Detroit Field
      Office of the FBI, the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern
      District of Michigan, and the Civil Rights Division of the United
      States Department of Justice.
