Threats against judge, President, result in prison time

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A man who threatened federal judge Mary Lou Robinson and former President George W. Bush will spend nearly four years in federal prison. 

Shane Powers, also known as Shaka Muhammed, was a prisoner in the Montford unit according to court records.  While in custody there he sent  threatening letters including one that says, "I will blow up the U.S.A.  I will wipe out U.S.A. and Isreal off the map." He goes on to say that he knows where George Bush lives and he demands the U.S. send $12.6 million to Al Qaeda.

Powers was found competent to stand trail and pleaded guilty. He was sentenced Friday and will serve out his remaining state prison sentence plus his new federal sentence.
