Four years probation and home detention.

That's the sentence for the Andrews man found guilty of threatening President Barack Obama.

On Friday, a federal judge sentenced 21-year-old Timothy Ryan Gutierrez to serve the first 10 months of his probation under house arrest with electronic monitoring.

Authorities say he threatened to kill President Barack Obama and blow up a Minneapolis mall in an e-mail he sent to the FBI back on January 12th.

He claimed the e-mails were pranks.
