• Man Sentenced in Threat Case Involving Sheriff Baca and Others

    ALHAMBRA (CNS) – A nearly 20-year prison term was handed down today for
    a man who pleaded no contest to charges that he made criminal threats against
    Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca and four other people and attempted to make
    criminal threats against Sen. Barbara Boxer and Rep. Mary Bono Mack.
    Alhambra Superior Court Judge Laura Priver imposed the 236-month term on
    Michael Karl McNeil, who pleaded no contest Dec. 30 to six counts of making
    criminal threats and three counts of attempted criminal threats.
    The threats were made in July 2008 in emails using the name of McNeil’s
    estranged wife from an email account he set up without her knowledge.
    Authorities believe McNeil was “trying to set up his estranged wife,’ Deputy
    District Attorney Jose Gonzalez said.
    The charges to which McNeil entered his plea involved threats against
    Baca, a Los Angeles County sheriff’s detective who investigated the defendant’s
    case, Lassen County District Attorney Bob Burns, a Lassen County judge and a
    staff member from Mack’s office. The attempted threats involved Boxer, D-
    Calif., Mack, R-Palm Springs, and Lassen County Public Defender David Marcus.
    McNeil, a former U.S. Forest Service firefighter, has remained jailed
    since his Aug. 6, 2008, arrest by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s
    Arson Explosives Detail.
