New Jersey man pleads guilty to threatening Gov. Bobby Jindal

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A New Jersey man has pleaded guilty to making a threatening phone call to Governor Bobby Jindal.

Ronnie McMillan Jr., 28, admitted to making a call to Jindal in September 2012, and leaving a voicemail saying Jindal and other republicans would "get a bullet in your head."

A federal judge accepted the plea agreement Wednesday. The Associate Press reports that at the time of his arrest last December, prosecutors said McMillian regularly called the offices of public officials and used vulgar language to attack the official's position on gay rights.

McMillian faces up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000 when he's sentenced in January.
