(FeaturedNews.com) – On Monday, Tracy Marie Fiorenza, a woman from Chicago, was arrested after she allegedly sent threatening messages about killing former President Donald Trump and his son, Barron Trump.
The 41-year-old woman is facing charges in Florida following the email she sent to the Palm Beach County School headmaster in May in which she stated that on the first opportunity she had she was going to shoot both the former President and his youngest son. The email she had sent was unsealed earlier this month as part of a criminal complaint. If she is found guilty, the woman could spend up to five years in prison.
Fiorenza, in a previous interview with the FBI in June, had stated that she “intentionally wrote” the emails that she had then proceeded to send from her home in Plainfield, Illinois, a Chicago suburb.
On Monday, the woman appeared in a Chicago court where she was informed by a judge that she was going to be moved to Florida as that was where the charges against her were filed.
Recent data has shown that there is an overall increase in the threats that U.S. public officials have had to deal with. According to the statistics, there have been 500 incidents of threats against public officials that have led to federal charges being filed in the last decade.
In one incident earlier this month, a man from Utah who had allegedly threatened several Democratic officials, including President Biden, was killed after being shot during an FBI raid. A woman from Texas was also charged for threatening that she would kill the judge who is responsible for overseeing the former President’s case.
