U.S. Attorney's Office, Middle District of Louisiana

United States Attorney Ronald C. Gathe, Jr. announced that Charles T. Germany, age 52, of Walker, Louisiana, pled guilty before Chief Judge Shelly D. Dick to interstate transmission of a threat to injure another. 

According to admissions made during his plea, on or about May 27, 2022, in the Middle District of Louisiana, Germany knowingly placed a telephone call from his home in Walker, Louisiana, to a member of the House of Representatives in Florida containing a true threat to injure said member.  During the call, he left a recorded voice message which was viewed by the member and their staff as a true threat. 

This matter was investigated by the United States Capitol Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer M. Kleinpeter with the assistance of Trial Attorney Kevin Nunnally of the Department of Justice’s Counterterrorism Section.
