US man gets 30 months for Obama death threat
St Louis: A man has been sentenced to two and
a half years in prison for threatening to kill President
Federal prosecutors say 33-year-old Josh McCallum of
Neosho, Missouri, was sentenced yesterday in US District Court
in St Louis. He pleaded guilty in May.
McCallum was already incarcerated at the Northeast
Correctional Center in Bowling Green in August 2009 when he
mailed a threatening letter to the White House that read in
part, "The president needs to be shot."
McCallum has been held at the Bowling Green prison since
1999 on tampering and burglary charges. He will serve the
federal sentence after his state charges expire in 2018.
His attorney, Felicia Jones, did not respond to interview
