The person who sent prominent Democrats explosive devices in the mail could spend the rest of their life in prison.
Federal law states that anyone who “transports or receives, or attempts to transport or receive, in interstate or foreign commerce any explosive with the knowledge or intent that it will be used to kill, injure, or intimidate any individual or unlawfully to damage or destroy any building, vehicle, or other real or personal property” can be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison.
With 10 suspicious packages currently being investigated, that’s a potential 100-year sentence. Injuring someone as part of a bomb threat can lead to a maximum 20 years in prison, and killing someone can lead to a life sentence or even the death penalty.
