A Minnesota woman was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Monday for mailing threats to Vice President Joe Biden, an FBI agent and others over the past two decades, reports the Star Tribune.
Kim Rolene Hutterer, of New Prague, Minn., rambled out what the paper called an “apology of sorts,” pleading that she just wanted an intimate relationship with someone in law enforcement and to be respected by society. US District Judge Paul Magnuson of Minneapolis said in court he has long had “deep feelings” about jailing the mentally ill, but felt Hutterer’s threats are becoming more serious even after pleading guilty, the paper reported.
“This is one of the most serious matters that has ever appeared in this court,” he said.
Hutterer admitted to threatening to kill a US Bureau of Prisons employee in September of 2010, as well as other threats, including ones against Biden and Minnesota FBI special agent Dean Scheidler. “Never has my family been threatened the way she has done,” said Scheidler, who has locked away drug dealers, thieves and terrorists. The threats grew so bad Scheidler said his daughter now carries around a notebook to jot down the license plates of suspicious cars in the neighborhood.
