BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A federal grand jury has indicted a Lockport man on charges that he threatened to kill President Donald Trump, a judge, the judge's wife, and a secret service agent.
Jared Marc Brown, 23, is facing one count of making a threat against the President, two counts of retaliating against a United States judge, one count of retaliating against a federal law enforcement officer, and one count of mailing a threatening communication.
According to prosecutors, Brown sent a letter to a U.S. secret service special agent on March 25 stating "I'm [ ] gonna kill Donald Trump with Antrax when I get out."
Investigators say Brown also threatened to assault and murder U.S. District Judge Lawrence Vilardo, his spouse and a federal agent.
If convicted, Brown faces up to 10 years in prison.
This marks the third time Brown has made such threats.
In 2017, a federal judge sentenced Brown to two years in prison for violating the terms of his supervised release.
Brown called 911 on December 26, 2016 and threatened to kill then-President-elect Trump.
At the time of the call to Lockport Police, Brown was already serving a three-year sentence of supervised release after spending 15 months in prison for threatening to kill former President Barack Obama.
