    someone want to explain to me what kind of 'threats' get someone a 17.5 year sentence in a federal penitentiary?

    EDIT:

    answer...

    http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/876
    (a) Whoever knowingly deposits in any post office or authorized depository for mail matter, to be sent or delivered by the Postal Service or knowingly causes to be delivered by the Postal Service according to the direction thereon, any communication, with or without a name or designating mark subscribed thereto, addressed to any other person, and containing any demand or request for ransom or reward for the release of any kidnapped person, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

    the edit in my previous post is what he was convicted of. Apparently, he mailed some threats and extortion letters, and the judge threw the book at him. It seems to have been a very large book.

    Terrorist threats here is a max 5 years in State.

    Course, Feds might have a Terroristic Threats statute thats different. But i dont practice Federal Criminal law at this time.

    probably because the threats were directed at a state college.

    bummer the book didn't hit him harder.
