Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 9.15.02 AMA Columbus man who threatened to kill President Obama has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Michael Clark Jr identified himself as a white supremacist in a letter that he sent to the White House in 2013 saying that he would board a bus, armed with a rifle, travel to Washington and assassinate the president.

Secret Service agents found Clark in a mental health facility in the Hilltop area.

The judge handing down sentence on Wednesday ordered that Clark serve his time in a prison equipped with a mental health program.

Prosecutors say that this is not the defendant’s first go around in this area. Clark threatened the life of former President Clinton in 1998.  (jj)
