Man could face five years in prison for threats on President Clinton's life

Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ A man could face five years in prison for allegedly making repeated threats on the life of President Clinton.

Victor Lee Taylor, 43, allegedly called the FBI five times within 15 minutes Thursday, saying that either he or a friend in Washington was going to kill Clinton.

An affidavit alleges that Taylor made similar threats against Clinton in September and October, and records show his threats against presidents date back to 1983.

In U.S. District Court in Tulsa Friday, Magistrate Frank McCarthy granted a motion that Taylor be sent to a federal facility in Springfield, Mo., for a mental evaluation.

If Taylor is deemed mentally competent and is convicted, he could face as much as five years in prison, Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth Snoke said.
