  • 6 years ago
A man has been charged in Florida with federal crimes in connection to sending at least 14 letter bombs to leading Democrats and others critical of U.S. President Donald Trump.
Fifty-six-year-old Cesar (sen-nick) Sayoc faces up to 48 years in prison, if found guilty.
The charges against him include mailing explosives and threatening ex-presidents.
Items have been sent in recent days to figures including ex-President Barack Obama, Congresswoman Maxine Waters and actor Robert de Niro.
In a news conference Friday,... FBI Director Christopher Wray said (sen-nick) Sayoc was detained after his fingerprint was discovered on one of the packages.
Following news of the arrest, President Trump said the acts were "despicable and have no place in our country".
