A New York man has been sentenced after threatening to kill former President Donald Trump with Anthrax, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Jared Marc Brown, 26, of Lockport, NY, who was convicted of making a threat against the president, retaliating against a United States judge, retaliating against a federal law enforcement officer, and mailing three threatening communications, was sentenced to serve 10 years in prison by U.S. District Judge Brenda K. Sannes. 

According to the DOJ, on March 25, 2019, Brown sent a letter to a United States Secret Service Special Agent stating, “I’m [ ] gonna kill Donald Trump with Anthrax when I get out.”

Also, on March 25, 2019, Brown threatened to assault and murder United States District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo, his spouse, and a United States Secret Service Special Agent.

Brown made the threats in retaliation for an earlier prosecution by this office.

Judge Vilardo presided over that case, and the Secret Service Special Agent conducted the investigation.

Additionally, on July 11, 2019, and again on November 1, 2019, Brown mailed further threatening letters, including one that purported to contain anthrax.
