Man Gets 18 Months For Clinton Threat

A man who threatened to kill President Clinton was sentenced Wednesday to 18 months in prison he already has served.

Glenn R. Armstrong already had been turned over to state authorities to face other charges when he pleaded guilty to the federal charge in March.

Armstrong had faced up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

U.S. District Judge Edward F. Harrington sentenced him to the time he already had served and placed him on three years of supervised release, during which he must undergo psychiatric therapy and supervised medication.

Armstrong was arrested on Aug. 29, 1994, after telling ferry operators he wanted to go to Martha’s Vineyard, where Clinton was on vacation, to kill him.

The U.S. attorney’s office said Armstrong, 27, had made similar threats previously.
