Man Pleads Guilty After Trying to Kill Supreme Court Justice

( – A man from Fernandina Beach, Florida, admitted he did something wrong on Monday. His name is Neal Brij Sidhwaney, and he said he was guilty of making a serious threat to kill a Justice from the U.S. Supreme Court in July.

The news came from U.S. Attorney Roger B. Handberg. Sidhwaney, who is 43 years old, pleaded guilty to a charge of making a threat that crossed state lines.

This all happened on July 31, 2023. Sidhwaney called the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. from Florida and left a message that was really mean and had bad words in it.

The court papers say that Sidhwaney told his name in the message. He kept saying he was going to harm a specific Supreme Court Justice. The Justice’s name wasn’t shared by the Department of Justice (DOJ), but they called the person “Victim 1” in the legal papers.

Fox News Digital tried to get more information from the DOJ about the victim, but they didn’t answer right away.

They haven’t decided when Sidhwaney will be punished yet. But if he is found guilty, he could go to federal prison for up to five years.

People who take care of security for the Supreme Court and the U.S. Capitol Police looked into the case. Two lawyers from the U.S. Attorney’s office, Kirwinn Mike and Joe Wheeler, III, are handling the case.
