Man arrested in HI pleads guilty to VP threats
Thursday - 9/20/2012, 10:00pm EDT
HONOLULU (AP) - A former U.S. serviceman arrested in Honolulu for sending emails from Thailand threatening to kill Vice President Joe Biden has pleaded guilty.
Justin Alan Woodward withdrew his not guilty plea during a hearing in federal court Thursday.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Brady says Woodward faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he's sentenced in January.
Woodward was arrested last year at the Honolulu airport when he arrived on a flight from Bangkok.
According to the criminal complaint, he told agents he wrote the threatening messages, including one sent to the White House website. The IP address was traced to a public Wi-Fi access point in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
He told officials he was discharged from the U.S Marine Corps for bipolar disorder.
