Warren is now serving 1-4 years for the assault charge and has been charged with false report or threat of terrorism and using a computer to commit a crime for the alleged threat. He was arraigned this week.

"Promising violence upon elected officials and officers of the court-- those kinds of statements are threats of terror," Nessel said. "Our department’s Hate Crimes and Domestic Terrorism Unit is specifically charged with handling these threats, and well equipped to pursue accountability for them."
