— A federal judge has found a Kansas man competent to stand trial on charges of threatening the president of the United States.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten made the ruling following a competency hearing Thursday for Michael Scott Ramsey.

Ramsey is charged in a two-count indictment with making threats in 2009 and 2011 against Barack Obama.

The hearing comes after Ramsey underwent a psychological examination and evaluation at a federal medical center. Officials determined he had the ability to understand the proceedings against him and assist in his own defense.

Indictments for similar charges could be handed out to about a dozen current and/or former users right here.
