WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – A man in the US state of Louisiana faces up to 15 years in prison for threatening to kill a female member of Congress, the Justice Department said on Thursday.
"The indictment alleges that on or about October 12, 2021, [Chase] Thibodeaux threatened to murder a Member of Congress while she was engaged in the performance of her official duties, and to retaliate against her on account of her official duties," the department said in a press release.
Thibodeaux, 38, faces a separate charge based on a threat made during interstate commerce based on a phone call to the unnamed lawmaker, the release added.
If convicted, Thibodeaux faces up to 10 years in prison on the charge of threatening a federal official, up to 5 years for transmitting threats during interstate commerce, and a fine of up to $250,000, according to the release.
