A Portland man who threatened President Obama in phone calls to the media was sentenced Wednesday in federal court to more than a year in prison.
Darryl Swanson apologized to the judge who also ordered three years of supervision after his release.
The Oregonian reports the 46-year-old has mental health problems.
Swanson called the paper and government offices last year saying the government owned him trillions of dollars. In a call to The Associated Press he said he might contact al-Quida and attack the White House.
