A citizen of the United States of America identified as Alex Hernandez, of Worcester has been sentenced to more than three years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal charge of threatening to kill former US President Barack Obama.
Hernandez, male pleaded guilty in May to a charge of threatening to kill and inflict bodily harm upon Obama when he was president. Hernandez was sentenced to 37 months Wednesday, according to a report by AFP.
Federal agents had in 2015 launched an investigation after intelligence revealed that Hernandez told another inmate he wanted to kill Obama in a “lone-wolf style attack.” the report said.
He will now serve his sentenced together with the one he is already serving for a drug-related crime he committed in 2011.
