Man jailed 15 months for Obama threat, gets 2 years for Trump threat

Jared Brown spent 15 months in prison for threatening then President Obama.

He's going back to prison, this time for threatening President Trump.

Brown, 20, of Niagara County, was sentenced Friday to two years in prison by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo for violating the supervised release that followed his previous prison sentence.

Brown was accused of making a 911 call to the Lockport City Police Department on Dec. 26 of last year in which he threatened to kill Trump.

His sentencing is the result of a prosecution by Assistant U. S. Attorney Scott S. Allen and an investigation by the U.S. Secret Service and Lockport Police.
