A Florida man who threatened to kill U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, writing that the Democratic congresswoman was on a "hit list," was sentenced to probation, according to court records.

David Hannon, of Sarasota, was sentenced Wednesday to three years of probation and fined $7,000 in connection with the threat, which was emailed in 2019.

In the email, Hannon, who was a supporter of former President Donald Trump, called Omar a "radical Muslim," threatened "mass assassinations" of what he called "radicals," and said that Omar was on a "hit list," according to court documents.

The email also said that Omar, D-Minnesota, and three other members of Congress would die.

Hannon, 67, of Sarasota, pleaded guilty in April to one count of threatening a federal official.

He apologized in court Wednesday, and said his wife had died of cancer and he has struggled with alcoholism, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

I hope he's able to get help for his anger and addiction issues.
