FOX News reports that a grand jury has indicted a Utah man after threatening to kill President Donald Trump during a visit to the state last month. The President was scheduled in Utah to announce changes to two national monuments.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Utah released the indictment this week alleging that Travis Luke Dominguez, 33, submitted threats to kill President Trump and harm police officers to a police tip line between November 13 and December 31. Dominguez also claimed he would utilize the Internet to spread false information about the threats to individuals and businesses in the area.
Dominguez also allegedly threatened a mass shooting or to use explosives at a public movie theater. He was later arrested after being spotted near the theater.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Dominguez has a history of making threats and now faces up to 100 years in prison for threatening the President’s life. The grand jury indicted him on 11 counts, with each carrying a maximum sentence of 10 years.
Other threats Dominguez has been linked to include exploding a sporting goods store in Midvale and a bank in Sandy. He was tracked by police after they connected his email address to the public WiFi service used to submit the threats.
Dominguez does not have an attorney on record and messages to his publicly listed phone have not been returned.
His past criminal record includes a 2003 conviction in Salt Lake City for stealing a cell phone and using it to report false emergencies to 911. He was then arrested in 2004, while on probation, for double-swiping credit cards at a Taco Bell where he worked. The judge at the time ordered him to serve six months in jail, probation and undergo psychological evaluations, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
