JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man accused of making a bomb threat while at Jacksonville International Airport will be represented by a federal public defender, Action News has learned.

United States Magistrate Judge James Klindt granted Zeljko Causevic the right to a public defender because the judge says the defendant does not have the financial resources to make it through all of the court proceedings.

Causevic entered JIA on Oct. 1 and told security agents he had a bomb in his backpack, officials said.

The threat was significant enough to shut down the airport for hours and keep passengers stranded on planes.

A grand jury indicted Causevic on a charge of conveying false or misleading information.

He is being held without bond.

Causevic's next court hearing is set for Oct. 29 at the federal courthouse.
