(CNN)A man was sentenced Thursday to more than three years in federal prison for sending threatening emails to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert.

Thomas Patrick Connally Jr., 56, was sentenced in US District Court in Maryland to 37 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release.
He had been arrested by authorities in West Virginia and charged last year with threats against a federal official and interstate communication containing a threat to harm.In his plea agreement, Connally admitted to sending a series of emails threatening to harm and/or kill Fauci and his family through an encrypted email service based in Switzerland. The investigation revealed that the encrypted email account was associated with Connally, the Justice Department said.
    Fauci started receiving the threatening messages to his work email at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Maryland in December 2020, the first of which came with the subject line: "Hope you get a bullet in your compromised satanic skull today," according to the complaint.
      One of seven emails that Connally sent to Fauci in a day read: "You and your entire family will be dragged into the street, beaten to death, and set on fire," according to the complaint.Read MoreConnally also sent threatening emails to Dr. Francis Collins, the former director of the National Institutes of Health, and Dr. Rachel Levine, the assistant secretary for health at the US Department of Health and Human Services.He admitted he sent the threats to Fauci and Collins with the "intent to intimidate or interfere with the performance of their official duties and with the intent to retaliate against Dr. Fauci and Dr. Collins for performing their official duties, including discussing COVID-19 and its testing and prevention," the Justice Department said.
          "Everyone has the right to disagree, but you do not have the right to threaten a federal official's life," US Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron said in a statement. "Threats like these will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law." Fauci, who also is chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, was forced to beef up security in 2020 as death threats increased amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

          Advice | Dear Abby: My exs lie made me break up with a wonderful man

          DEAR ABBY: I was married for almost 20 years to a jealous, controlling man.

          “Pete” was emotionally abusive, which I didn’t really notice because I’m not confrontational. I would just try to make him happy and ignore his controlling behavior.

          Toward the end of our marriage, I realized how isolated I had become. I had pushed most of my friends and family away. They didn’t want to visit because of Pete’s negative attitude.

          Our daughter developed an illness in her teens that requires 24-hour care. Her illness didn’t necessarily upset Pete; what did upset him is the attention she would require in the future. He would say things like, “She’s ruining our retirement. I was looking forward to having you to myself and not having to deal with anyone.”

          This was when I realized how controlling he was. It felt like I had been wearing a blindfold and then I could finally see. I immediately filed for divorce.

          A year afterward, I started seeing an old friend I’ll call “Darren,” someone my husband had often accused me of cheating with. (He did that with any man I knew.)

          I really like Darren and can see a future with him. He treats my daughter great and doesn’t mind that when we go out she has to tag along.

          Pete said that if I date Darren, it’s proof that I cheated on him. I don’t want my ex to think for a minute that our marriage ended because I cheated, because it’s not true. So I broke up with Darren because I refuse to accept him being labeled as the person who broke up my marriage.

          What would you do?

          KEEPING THE STORY STRAIGHT

          DEAR KEEPING: What would I do? I would, once and for all, quit allowing my ex to control me!

          I’d call Darren and talk with him about why I ended the relationship and ask if he would consider resuming where the two of us left off. If he is willing, I would move forward. However, if he isn’t, I’d find a licensed psychotherapist who could give me the tools to avoid my ex’s manipulations in the future.

          DEAR ABBY: My partner and I have a wonderful relationship, but there is one area of contention we don’t know how to solve. I like a firm mattress. She likes a soft mattress.

          We bought an adjustable bed, so each of us could fine-tune the settings to our desired comfort level. It has been a month now, and I hate the new mattress. I just cannot get comfortable.

          It’s so bad I find myself sleeping in another room just to catch a good night’s rest.

          As you can imagine, sleeping apart causes anxiety between us, and it has been confusing and stressful for our animals. How do you propose we solve this in a way that restores peace in our relationship?

          YAWNING IN ARIZONA

          DEAR YAWNING: Pay a visit to the store from which you purchased that adjustable bed and find out if you need a lesson or two on how to operate the mattress correctly. (You won’t be the first, trust me on that.) If your discomfort persists, sell the bed and replace it with two twin- or queen-sized mattresses so you and your partner can at least share the same room.
