Iowa inmate gets two-year term for Obama threat
IOWA CITY (AP) — A mentally ill Iowa inmate who told the Secret Service that he would kill President Barack Obama “JFK-style” once he was released will serve two years in federal prison, a judge ruled Friday.
U.S. District Judge John Jarvey issued the sentence to 24-year-old Tommy Eugene Krueger during a hearing in federal court in Davenport.
Jarvey rejected a plea for leniency by the defense attorney for Krueger, who argued his client had a mild mental disability and acted only after another inmate told him he could get better mental health treatment in federal prison if he threatened to kill the president.
