Superseding indictment against Rochester man accused of threatening to kill the president, governor, others

ROCHESTER – A federal grand jury has returned a seven-count superseding indictment charging Brandon Correa, 30, of Rochester, N.Y., with making multiple direct threats to kill the President of the United States, Barack Obama. The defendant is also charged with making multiple online threats to kill New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Lieutenant Governor Robert Duffy, and Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren. Each count is punishable by five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

According to the indictment, the defendant, who had previously been indicted for posting online threats to kill President Obama, Governor Cuomo, and Lieutenant Governor Duffy in June, made and posted new threats against them following his arraignment on those charges last week. Correa also made new online threats against Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren. The defendant was interviewed following the June threats and told a Secret Service Agent that the President had to “die.”

The defendant will be arraigned later this week in federal court

The superseding indictment is the culmination of an investigation on the part of Special Agents of the United States Secret Service, Investigators from the New York State Police, Protective Services Unit, and Investigators from the Rochester Police Department, Major Crimes Unit.
