The U.S. Department of Justice said a Spartanburg County man is facing indictments after threatening the lives of American politicians.

Officials said King is accused of also making threats to kill the president and president-elect. The U.S. Secret Service and the Spartanburg County Detention Center are investigating the case.

If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
