A Bayport man who prosecutors say threatened Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has been indicted on additional charges, his lawyer said Monday.

Jack Geoghan, 45, may be arraigned later this week on the upgraded charges, said his attorney, Bryan E. Cameron of Sayville. He said he did not know what Geoghan will be charged with.

A spokesman for District Attorney Thomas Spota declined to comment.

Grand jury indictments generally are not disclosed until a judge unseals them at a defendant's arraignment.

Prosecutors said Geoghan, who works in a real estate appraisal business, called the attorney general's office in Hauppauge at least twice to complain about legislation Cuomo supported regarding home appraisals.

Geoghan told a secretary he "would unleash the wrath of God" on Cuomo and said, "I am going to track him down and shoot him," prosecutors said.

Geoghan pleaded not guilty Dec. 16 in First District Court in Central Islip to making a terrorist threat, a felony with a maximum sentence of 21/3 to 7 years in prison, and two counts of second-degree aggravated harassment.

He is being held on $50,000 bail.
