JACKSON, Miss. -- A Wisconsin man will spend 36 months in prison for making Internet threats to assassinate then-President-Elect Barack Obama.
Steven Joseph Christopher, 42, was living in Brookhaven in January when he made the Internet threat against Obama, about a week before the president was sworn into office.
Christopher admitted making the threat, but said he never had any intention of harming Obama. He claims he made the threat to get attention. He said he believes that he is the second coming of Christ and the Apocalypse is coming in 2012.
When U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate asked him what he thought his sentence should be, Christopher replied, "I think I should be let go. I want to meet with President Obama. I am the Christ, the returned Christ. I'm asking you to look at my heart. I think you (Wingate) are an honorable man and I hope you will see that I'm the Messiah and kiss me on the head."...
