TYLER, Texas - (AP) A Texas prison system inmate has pleaded guilty to making a written threat against President Barack Obama.
Prosecutors on Friday announced 28-year-old Robert Lee Berkley Jr. of Rusk pleaded guilty to making threats against the president.
No sentencing date was immediately set by a federal magistrate in Tyler. Berkley, who pleaded guilty Wednesday, faces up to five years in federal prison.
Investigators say Berkley last June was in the Hodge Unit when he wrote a letter claiming, when he's released, he planned to travel to Washington in order to kill the president and his family. Berkley was indicted last July.
