Ind. man gets 16 months for online police threats

Evansville — An Evansville man has been sentenced to 16 months in federal prison for making online threats against the southwestern Indiana city's police department.

Thirty-two-year-old Derrick G. Murray was sentenced Tuesday, three months after he pleaded guilty to one count of transmitting threats in interstate commerce for using the Internet to communicate a physical threat.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports that in June 2012 Murray posted anonymous comments against Evansville police on a discussion thread he created on the Topix.com website. Murray acknowledged posting the comments using a smartphone through a wireless Internet connection at a house near where he lived with his mother.

Evansville police searched that home before they searched Murray's mother's home and confiscated two cellphones from him.
