A Hobart man has been charged in federal court with threatening the
president of the United States, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern
District of Indiana said.
On Tuesday, Jimmie Ray, 32, was charged in a two-count indictment with
threatening the president and with influencing, impeding, or retaliating
against a federal official by threat, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
Ray was ordered detained at a prison hospital for a competency evaluation,
the U.S. Attorney’s Office said, and a hearing will be held after Magistrate
Judge Andrew Rodovich has received the evaluation report.
The case was investigated by the FBI.
