Pence in Cleveland

An Army National Guardsman has been sentenced to six months incarceration, followed by six months of home detention with electronic monitoring, for making a threat against Vice President Mike Pence.

He pleaded guilty in December to making the threat before Pence's visit to Pennsylvania for the annual observance of the Flight 93 crash on September 11.

Dunbar pleaded guilty in December and was sentenced on Friday.

Authorities say the man from Berlin, Pennsylvania, was on duty at the Army National Guard Training Center on September 8 when he said, "If someone pays me enough money, I will kill the vice president".

Investigators say three people heard William Dunbar, 23, say he would kill Pence if someone paid him enough money. "There's nothing they're going to do".
