MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The
United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma
announced that Stanley Colin Moldenhauer, age 39, of Plano, Texas was
sentenced to 6 months’ imprisonment, 6 months at a halfway house and 3
years of supervised release for Transmitting a Threatening Communication
in Interstate Commerce, in violation of Title 18, United States Code,
Section 875(c), The charges arose from an investigation by the Choctaw
Nation Tribal Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The Indictment alleged that on or about May 4, 2019, in the Eastern
District of Oklahoma and elsewhere, the defendant, did knowingly and
willfully transmit in interstate commerce, communications containing a
threat to injure a person.
United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “Threatening to injure
others is not only unnecessary and wrong, it is illegal. The defendant
now has a clear understanding of such. I hope others who might be
inclined to make threats will make better decisions than he did.”
“Today's sentencing is a reminder that communicating a threat is a
serious crime and will not be tolerated,” said Melissa Godbold, Special
Agent in Charge of the FBI's Oklahoma City Field Office. "The FBI and
our law enforcement partners will continue to aggressively investigate
individuals who threaten violence against tribal nation facilities."
The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United
States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee,
presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney Sarah
McAmis represented the United States.
