Report: Calif. man pleads guilty to threatening to kill FCC chairman's family

A California man pleaded guilty in federal court Aug. 31 to threatening to kill the family of U.S. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, according to a report from the Associated Press.

Markara Man, a 33-year-old resident of Norwalk, Calif., now faces up to 10 years in prison, after reportedly admitting to sending multiple threatening emails to Pai because he was unhappy about the commission’s repeal of net neutrality rules.

"I would like to thank the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI, local law enforcement, and FCC security officials for their hard work protecting my family and me," wrote Pai in a Sept. 4 statement. "I am deeply grateful for all they have done to keep us safe."
