ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) - An Olive Branch man who admitted making threats against President George W. Bush has been sentenced to 18 months in federal prison.
U.S. District Judge Sharon Aycock sentenced Neal Allan Thomas on Thursday after he pleaded guilty in January to a charge of threatening Bush on the Internet site MySpace.com.
After the 21-year-old's attorney cited a psychiatric report showing his client has mental problems, the judge recommended a medical facility where Thomas could get treatment while being held.
Thomas was indicted Sept. 18, 2008, after someone turned him into the Secret Service.
