(AP) A northeastern Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to posting an online threat to kill the president.


Nicholas Savino pleaded guilty Monday to posting a threat on the White House website last August that said, "President Obama the Anti-Christ. As a result of breaking the constitution you will stand down or be shot dead."


The 42-year-old Clarks Summit man will be sentenced June 11. He faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.


Under a plea agreement, Savino will forfeit three guns and about 11,000 rounds of ammunition that agents found in his apartment and car. Savino was arrested about a week after posting the threat, just before Obama visited nearby Scranton.
