California Man Pleads Guilty to Threatening Senator Barbara Boxer

Is California Senator Barbara Boxer worth going to jail? 

Probably NOT, but this moron could not control his temper and off he goes.

A San Rafael man accused of threatening to kill U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer pleaded guilty as charged Monday, a county prosecutor said.

Kevin Joseph O’Connell, 47, admitted to charges of criminal threats and threatening a public official, said Deputy District Attorney Aicha Mievis.

O’Connell accepted an offer from Judge Terrence Boren to plead guilty if the charges were reduced to misdemeanors, Mievis said.

O’Connell faces up to a year in jail when he is sentenced Nov. 9.

O’Connell was arrested in July after leaving a threatening voice mail at the senator’s office in San Francisco. San Rafael police said O’Connell was upset over supposed harassment by public safety officers and tensions with his neighbor, not about Boxer’s politics.

“It was a cry for help,” said O’Connell’s lawyer, Deputy Public Defender Bonnie Marmor.

O’Connell could have faced up to three years in prison if convicted of the felony charges. He remains in custody at the Marin County Jail.

Remember folks, you can disagree with the POLS. But, stick to the issues or you will end up like this guy – in JAIL.
