A 61-year-old Florida woman was sentenced to 18 months in prison for threatening to shoot FBI agents in videos posted on social media, the Justice Department announced Thursday.
Suzanne Ellen Kaye was found guilty by a jury in June 2022.
Kaye posted the threats on social media after the FBI informed her that it was planning to interview her after receiving a tip that she had been at the U.S. Capitol on the day of the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection.
On Jan. 31, 2021, three days after the FBI contacted her about an interview, Kaye posted three videos on social media, including one in which she said she would “shoot their [expletive] a–” if agents showed up at her house.
The FBI received a tip about the social media posts on Feb. 8 and arrested her at her home nine days later.
