A Pennsylvania man convicted of threatening President Donald Trump and a district attorney was sentenced to 20 years in prison Thursday.
Authorities charged 28-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo with threatening to put a bullet in Trump and then-Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli and threatening lethal force against police, according to the Associated Press (AP).
Authorities caught Christy in Ohio in 2018 following a manhunt that spanned several states and Canada, WNEP reported.
The article continued:
While he was on the run, federal officials say Christy broke into several homes and businesses, stealing food, firearms, and vehicles.
Federal officials said after making threats online, Christy went on a three-month crime spree, breaking into homes, businesses like Hazleton Oil where he used to work, Skipper Dipper in Schuylkill County, even the Scranton School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Police said he stole food, firearms, and vehicles in a total of six states and Canada before being caught in Ohio.
Christy said he has been unfairly targeted by the government and represented himself in court.
In addition to his prison sentence, Christy must also pay $1,200 in court fees and more than $18,000 in restitution for the crime spree.
At the hearing, the judge referred to him as painting a picture of a man to be feared, according to WFMZ.
For about an hour and a half of the hearing Christy objected to details of a pre-sentence report. During the hearing he said that he knew the government did not like him and that he felt dehumanized, the article noted.
However, his mother told the judge Thursday that her son had cognitive and mental health issues, adding that the sentence should be lower or he should be given help while in prison.

Always proof you be cray-cray! ;)
Dehumanized - that’s rich in light of his threat
No, I would have never guessed it.
Please ping me with articles of interest.
FReepmail me to be added to the list.
He got 20 years for being a felon in possession of a gun and traveling across state lines.
It’s just the law. and it is a felony:
Threatening the president of the United States is a federal felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making “any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the president of the United States”.
People are just stupid. Anyone with any intelligence could figure that one out.
Now the sentencing makes sense otherwise, half the Country would also be doing 20
And only twenty years?
Isn’t that about the age when we all knew everything?
Then why are media idiots and Hollyweird people not in jail??
Some Obama judge will reverse the sentence, using that as an excuse
they’ll just let him out because of covid
"Welcome to Oz, *****!"
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
One of those 'sensitive' liberal men we hear so much about? /s
When can we expect a Kathy Griffin conviction?

I've noticed that the Democrat Party electorate seems to
consist of a large proportion of the petty criminal class of America.
Anyone else notice that?
