Iowa Woman Sentenced to Prison for Email Threats

Vanessa Roberts Avery, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that ADRIAN JOHNSON, 32, of Waterloo, Iowa, was sentenced today by U.S. District Kari A. Dooley in Bridgeport to 22 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for sending threatening emails to a Connecticut company.

According to court documents and statements made in court, in August 2020, as part of a dispute with a Connecticut financial company, Johnson sent email messages to employees of the company in which she threatened to locate, confront and murder the company’s president.  Johnson was arrested in Kansas City, Missouri, on August 27, 2020.

On June 3, 2022, Johnson pleaded guilty to making interstate threats.  She is currently detained.

This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in New Haven and Kansas City.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Lauren C. Clark.
