DENVER (AP) - An Andrews man has pleaded guilty to threatening President Barack Obama and the Mall of America in Minneapolis.
Timothy Ryan Gutierrez pleaded guilty on Monday to a charge of making threats by e-mail. Prosecutors dropped a charge of threatening to use an explosive in exchange for his plea.
The 21-year-old from Andrews was accused of sending the e-mails from his brother's Cortez home to the FBI a week before Obama's inauguration. Gutierrez claimed the e-mails were a prank.
