A man who repeatedly threatened a pro-life activist is expected to pay a price for his actions.
Federal authorities arrested and charged Christopher Thompson, 22, for making death threats to longtime pro-life group Operation Rescue.
Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger tells OneNewsNow that Thompson began calling the Wichita, Kansas-based group a year ago and also called Sullenger on her personal cell phone.
“And made death threats to us, to our families and to my daughters in particular,” she says. “He threatened to murder and rape my daughters.”
The pro-life activist says Thompson also made Satanic references in some of the phone calls, which totaled at least 17 over several weeks.
Operation Rescue turned the phone call records over to the FBI and now Thompson has pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of making a death threat.
“He was initially indicted on four counts of making threatening phone calls,” Sullenger tells OneNewsNow.
Thompson will undergo sentencing this fall and faces up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines, Sullenger says, citing the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
