TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Tulsa man has pleaded guilty to sending emails to a Tulsa television station threatening to kill President Joe Biden, members of Congress, and their families.

Court records show that 58-year-old John Jacob Ahrens pleaded guilty on Thursday to threatening the President and two counts of interstate communication with a threat to injure in emails to KOTV.

In a signed statement, Ahrens said he had no plea agreement, but pleaded guilty on his attorney’s advice in hopes of receiving a lenient sentence. He faces up to 15 years in prison when sentenced, according to the document.
