No Bond for Dallas Man Accused of Obama Threat

A Dallas man accused of making an online death threat against President Barack Obama must remain in custody.

U.S. Magistrate Jeff Kaplan on Wednesday denied 43-year-old Brian Dean Miller bail, deciding he is a danger to the community. Miller is charged with one count of making threats against the president.

Miller was located via his e-mail address. He was living with his mother.

A posting titled "Obama must die" turned up on a Craigslist site on March 21, the night Congress passed a health care overhaul bill. The posting said Miller was following through on his vow to become a terrorist if the federal health care bill passed.

Miller's trial is expected in July. If convicted, he could get up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
