Feds Indict Ex-Marine From Camp Lejeune With Threatening Obama

Federal prosecutors have indicted a former Marine based at Camp Lejeune with threatening President Barack Obama before he took office.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's office in Raleigh said Thursday a federal grand jury has returned an indictment against 20-year-old Kody Brittingham. He is charged with making threats against the president-elect.

The indictment was handed up Wednesday.

Brittingham was administratively separated from the Marine Corps on Jan. 3, following a December arrest on state charges he attempted armed robbery of a Jacksonville hotel. He remains jailed in Onslow County.

The Marine Corps says Brittingham was a lance corporal who joined the Marine Corps in July 2007. He never deployed with the Marines.
