ALBUQUERQUE — Officials said an Albuquerque man has pleaded guilty to federal charges after being accused of posting Facebook messages threatening to kill Gov. Miichelle Lujan Grisham, law enforcement officers and other government officials.

The U.S. Attorney''s Office for New Mexico said 34-year-old Daniel Logan Mock pleaded guilty Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque to two counts of transmission of threatening communications in interstate commerce.

The office said Mock acknowledged in a plea agreement that he posted threatening messages on March 2 and March 13.

According to a statement issued by the office, Mock faces up to five years in prison on each count when he's sentenced.

Threatening a duly elected official is not only an attack on an individual person, it is also an attack on our democracy. We elect our government, and though it is a tremendously flawed process, it is our democratic process.

When our democratic process is attacked, we should defend our process with the full force of law. LOCK HIM UP!

I wonder when he will be sentenced. The article didn’t specify if it was immediate.

NM has an issue where people charged with pretty intense crimes get released on absurdly low bails or somehow walk away with just a fine. Seems like in this case it’s certain he’ll face jail time.
