CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – A woman pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of threatening President Bush (search).
A grand jury indicted Catherine M. Guertin (search), 24, in August and she was arrested the next month. Her guilty plea was entered as part of an agreement with federal prosecutors, according to court documents.
The threats were made in May while Guertin was living in Independence, the indictment says.
The woman allegedly threatened Bush by saying, "I want him gone" and "If I ever have a gun, I will shoot him between the eyes." She also allegedly wrote statements threatening the president.
The maximum penalty for conviction of threatening the president is five years in prison per count, said U.S. Assistant Attorney Kandice Wilcox (search).
Guertin's attorney requested that she be moved to a location "that can address her mental and physical requirements," court documents said.
