The Facts

A West Virginia man was sentenced to three years in prison for sending intimidating emails to Anthony Fauci.
On Thursday, US District Judge Paula Xinis in Greenbelt, Maryland, sentenced Thomas Connally Jr. (56) of Snowshoe, West Virginia, to 37 months in federal prison and another three years of supervised release after he pleaded guilty in May to a federal charge of making threats against a federal official.
According to prosecutors, Connally threatened that Fauci and his family would be “dragged into the street, beaten to death, and set on fire.”
In a plea bargain, Connally admitted he sent threatening emails to Fauci, hoping to intimidate and interfere with his official duties as the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
According to the DOJ, Connally’s threats also targeted Francis Collins, the director of the National Institutes of Health, at the time of the emails.
