Kevin Lee Olson was sentenced Monday to 12 months and one day in federal prison for sending a threatening email to Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D.
Following time prison, U.S. District Chief Judge Brian S. Miller, Eastern District of Arkansas, sentenced Olson, 57, of Fargo, to two years supervised release. Immediately after the sentencing hearing, Olson was remanded to federal prison and further ordered to pay $100 in special assessments to the Crime Victims’ Fund.
