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