Man Who Shot at White House Given 25 Years

An Idaho man who pleaded guilty to firing an assault rifle at the White House in 2011 was sentenced Monday to 25 years in prison, reports The Associated Press (AP).

Prosecutors initially charged Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, 23, with attempting to assassinate President Barack Obama but agreed to drop the charge as part of a plea deal last year.
