20-year-old sentenced in Facebook threat case

Monday, August 26, 2013

The young man who admitted to threatening a police informant through Facebook is going to prison.

20-year-old Freddie Henriquez was sentenced to up to 23 months in prison Monday.

He pleaded guilty to witness retaliation against a straw purchaser who agreed to testify against the men she was buying guns for.

Henriquez posted that woman's statement on Facebook last year.

He called her a snitch and rat, and even tried to get others to hurt her to keep her from testifying.
