Oakdale inmate sentenced for threats against President


A former Nebraska man, who was an inmate at the Oakdale Medical and Classification Center in Oakdale, has been sentenced to five years in federal prison for threats against the President and eight years in federal prison for threatening to blow-up a building. 

Terrence Deshawn Dunn, 36, formerly of Lincoln, Nebraska, pleaded guilty on February 25 and was sentenced on Tuesday.

According to court documents, the U.S. Secret Service received a letter from Dunn on February 5, 2010.  Part of the letter read:

"My name is T.D.D. aka Hitman and I am part of an underground organization
that cause terrorism in the United State. . . . the UGO are plotting to plan more attack on Government agency. . . . the UGO's are about to attack two more of you federal building and plan to go after the President of the United State. On Nov 11, 2009 two federal Building will Be Blown completely up . . . I have set up the master plan to have Barack Obama killed and this plan is fool proof. . . . you don't have a cue which federal Building are about to get hit only I know."

The envelope was addressed to "Federal Bureau of Investigation, 935 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington D.C. 20535."  The return address was "Terrence Deshawn Dunn, Iowa Medical and Classification Center, 2700 Coral Ridge Ave., Coralville, Iowa 52841," which is where Dunn was incarcerated.  The envelope was postmarked November 3, 2009.

When Dunn was interviewed by the Secret Service on February 10, 2010, he admitted writing the letter.

Dunn's sentences will run concurrently, meaning he will serve the two sentences at the same time and spend up to eight years in prison.
