A 45-year-old man has been convicted of threatening to blow up the J. Edgar Hoover FBI building in Washington, D.C. and has been sentenced to 42 months in prison, the United States Attorney and the FBI Houston Special Agent in Charge announced earlier this week. The man is in custody at the FBI building in Washington, pending a transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be designated where he will serve his sentence according to an FBI statement. The Jackson, Mississippi resident has been in custody since his arrest at the FBI building, July 30, 2008, and in March 2010 was found guilty of sending a threatening communication in interstate commerce.
