NEWARK, NEW JERSEY-  A man from New Jersey got two years probation as his sentence for pleading guilty to making threatening phone calls to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal two-years ago.

Ronnie McMillian of Hawthorne left voice-mail messages to Jindal and other Republicans saying they would "get a bullet in your head."

He'll have to serve six-months of home incarceration as part of his sentence.

Federal prosecutors say McMillian was well-known for regularly calling offices of public officials, including members of Congress, and using vulgar language to attack their stance on gay rights.
