NorCal Man Indicted For Making Threats Against The President

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted a Eureka man who allegedly sent a letter threatening to kill President Barack Obama.

According to court documents, 54-year-old Roger Hudnall wrote, “I will kill the president,” in a letter mailed on Jan. 7, 2009.

It’s not clear from court documents whether Hudnall has an attorney. Wednesday’s indictment says he’s currently in state custody on another conviction.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Hudnall previously served federal prison time for mailing a threatening letter containing white powder to the FBI’s San Francisco office in 2002. The white substance turned out to be baby powder.

Hudnall later admitted sending the letter to scare his former landlord, whose return address he put on the envelope.
