Man sentenced for threat to congressman
A man who left a voice-mail message at an Ohio congressman’s district office in Hilliard mentioning a June shooting at a baseball practice for members of Congress has been sentenced to more than three years in prison.
Judge Michael Watson on Friday sentenced 69-year-old Stanley Hoff to 40 months in prison following Hoff ’s October guilty plea to threatening to assault and murder a U.S. official.
Authorities said the voice mail Hoff left last year at the office of Republican Rep. Steve Stivers mentioned the shooting in Alexandria, Va., that injured five people, including Republican House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (La.).
