A Florida man pleaded guilty in federal court Friday to charges stemming from threats of two members of Congress and a district attorney.
As part of the plea, Hoeffer admitted to calling one congresswoman in March 2019 with a threat to “rattle her head with bullets and cut her head off,” according to the DOJ.
Officials said he called a district attorney in Illinois with a similar threat on the same day telling her bullets were going to “rattle her brain.”
Hoeffer admitted to another threat in November 2020 to a congresswoman in New York, telling her to “sleep with one eye open” because he would “rip her head off,” according to the DOJ.
Hoeffer originally had pleaded not guilty at his December 2021 arraignment in West Palm Beach.
Hoeffer faces up to 15 years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for April 1.
