ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Prosecutors say an Albuquerque man accused of threatening New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and others online faces up to five years in federal prison if convicted.
Daniel Mock appeared in federal court in Albuquerque on Wednesday.
A criminal complaint charges the 33-year-old Mock with transmitting threatening communications in interstate or foreign commerce.
According to the complaint, Mock threatened the life of Grisham and some law enforcement officers earlier this month.
Mock allegedly posted threatening messages to the governor’s Facebook page on March 2 and 13.
