A Rochester woman who was on trial for threatening to kill President Obama was found guilty.

Christine Wright-Darrisaw was found guilty of on one count of threatening to kill the President of the United States, and one count of making false statements to Secret Service agents.

Secret Service agents say Darrisaw called the White House back in 2012 and told the operator she was going to kill the President if he did not take action against the country’s current child custody laws.

She faces up to five years in prison and $250,00 fine when sentenced in May.
