Sentencing set for Hutchinson man for threatening Obama

April 2, 2012


— A Kansas man who admitted threatening President Barack Obama faces two years in prison at his sentencing.

A notice filed Monday in U.S. District Court lists a June 18 sentencing for Michael Ramsey.

The Hutchinson man pleaded guilty last week to writing a letter in 2009 threatening to kill the president. A charge related to a second threatening letter sent last year was dropped under a deal with prosecutors.

A psychological exam found no evidence Ramsey suffered from any disorder that made him unable to appreciate the wrongfulness of his action.
