Oakdale Prisoner Convicted Of Threatening President Obama
A Louisiana prisoner admits to making threats against President Obama and his immediate family. U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley says Carlton Norah was serving his term at the Oakdale Correctional Complex when he tried to mail a letter he had written, containing a threat to kill or harm President Obama. Norah addressed the letter to the White House and admitted that he intended for the letter to be taken seriously as a threat. Officials at the prison found the letter before it left in the outgoing mail. Norah faces a maximum of five more years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, or both.
