Man Who Shot at White House Given 25 Years

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, who pleaded guilty to firing an assault rifle at the White House, was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

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.

Ortega-Hernandez instead pleaded guilty to two charges, including damaging the home.
