Kentucky inmate accused of threatening President Obama, First Lady

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A grand jury has indicted an inmate at the Kentucky State Penitentiary on charges of threatening the life of President Obama and his family.

The charges say 35-year-old Anthony Holliman of Oldham County wrote threatening letters back in May of last year.  In the letters, which featured several misspellings and racial slurs, authorities say Holliman threatened to kill the president and sexually assault and kill his wife and daughters.

Holliman is already serving a 35-year sentence.  If convicted of these new charges, he faces a maximum of five years in prison for each charge, a fine of half a million dollars, and three years of probation. 

He's scheduled to appear in court to face those charges on March 26th.
