A Kentucky inmate is facing federal charges for threatening the life of President Obama and his family.

Anthony Holliman, 35, was charged by a grand jury in Louisville Wednesday, with threatening the president and his family.

The indictment says while Holliman was in the Kentucky State Penitentiary, he wrote the letter to the president in May.

The U.S. Attorney's office says he wrote a second letter to first lady Michelle Obama threatening her and the Obama's two daughters.

If convicted, Holliman faces up to five years in prison and a half-million dollar fine.
