New York man will do one year in prison after threatening the life of Rep. IIhan Omar

Last Updated on

Addison, New York – Patrick W. Carlineo, Jr., 56, has been sentenced to serve one year and one day after threatening to take the life of Minnesota representative, IIhan Omar.

Carlineo pleaded guilty in November and on Friday he was sentenced, but the sentence may have been worst if it wasn’t for the compassionate plea for leniency from Omar herself. Omar posted on her Twitter account the letter that she forwarded to the sentencing judge, “Sharing my full letter on the the sentencing of Patrick W. Carlineo, a man convicted of threatening my life. We must apply a system of compassion to criminal justice. Who are we as a nation if we respond to threats of political retribution with retribution ourselves?”

Originally from Mogadishu, Somalia, Omar has been in American politics since 2017 serving in the Minnesota House of Representatives. In 2019, Omar began serving in the United States House of Representatives. As a Muslim, Omar has been receiving harsh criticism for being a politician representing not only her district, but the United States.
