Jason Kobely of News10.net reports that a Sacramento man has pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to making threats over the Internet to kill members of the rock band KORN, according to federal prosecutors.
Adrian McCoy, 23, entered the guilty plea in United States District Court in Sacramento Friday to a single count of making interstate threats to injure another, U.S. Attorney Michelle Rodriguez said.
According to investigators, McCoy sent threatening communications to the FBI's Web site in September 2007. In the email, McCoy threatened to kill members of the band, the band's family and FBI agents who responded to his acts of violence, Rodriguez said.
One of the most popular hard rock bands of the past decade, KORN has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and won two Grammy Awards.
McCoy faces a possible sentence of five years in prison and a fine up to $250,000. He is scheduled to be sentenced April 25.
