Kentucky Inmate Charged With Threatening President, First Family

U.S. Courts

A Kentucky inmate has been charged with threatening the life of President Barack Obama, the first lady and their two daughters.

A grand jury in Louisville today charged Kentucky State Penitentiary inmate Anthony D. Holliman with threatening the president and a second count of threatening the president's family.

The indictment says Holliman, who’s serving decades in prison for rape and other convictions, wrote a threatening letter addressed to Obama in May.  It says Holliman used racial epithets in the letter.
