Threat called insane act
CINCINNATI, OHIO- A former bartender who threatened to kill House Speaker John Boehner because he was the devil was found not guilty by reason of insanity.
A federal judge found Michael Hoyt was insane at the time he made the threat. Hoyt was ordered back to a federal medical facility for evaluation.
Prosecutors contended Hoyt would try to kill Boehner with a gun or with poison. Hoyt has a history of mental disorder but was found competent to stand trial.
He could have faced ten years in prison if he'd been found guilty.
