A Connecticut man with claimed ties to a white supremacist group was accused of sending more than a dozen threats last September that targeted federal judges, mental health facilities and minority groups in Connecticut, as well as a threat to kill President Donald Trump, a newly unsealed indictment shows.
Gary Joseph Gravelle, 51, who was charged with similar crimes in 2010 under the name Roland Prejean, faces 16 counts associated with the menacing messages, including threats against the president, after he was indicted last week by a grand jury in New Haven, federal court records show.
According to the indictment, Gravelle first started sending threatening emails on the evening of Sept. 4, beginning with a bomb threat to mental health facility in New Haven.
Within several hours, he had made bomb threats against U.S. Probation officers, who were not identified. At least one threat referenced their offices in the Abraham A. Ribicoff Federal Building in Hartford. Near midnight, the indictment shows, Gravelle sent threats that targeted Burlington International Airport in Vermont and a federal prison in Seattle.
