ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A homeless man in Roanoke has pleaded guilty to charges of threatening to kill President Barack Obama.
41-year-old Steven John Gurczynski entered his plea Monday in U.S. District Court in Roanoke.
  Sentencing is set for Aug. 23. Gurczynski faces up to five years in prison but the plea agreement recommends that he be sentenced to time served.
A federal indictment charged Gurczynski with making the threats in December 2010 while living at the Roanoke Rescue Mission.
During the sentencing hearing, Gurcznski told U.S. District Judge James Turk that he never intended to harm the president.
