A Rockingham man has been sentenced to time served after admitting he threatened to kill President Barack Obama.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 44-year-old Christopher King was sentenced on Monday to a two-year term of supervised released after pleading guilty to one count of threatening to kill the president.

King had spent two months in federal custody after being arrested in October of 2010.

Court records say he posted the threat on Twitter and his Internet blog which contained assertions that the United States government committed the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
