An Alva man will be spending the next six months in federal prison for making death threats on the internet.

Chase A. Davis, 20, was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Judge Sheri Polster Chappell. Davis will also serve a three-year term of supervised release, pay $1,400 to the American Family Association and spend 400 hours in community service.

Davis plead guilty Nov. 27.

According to court documents, on May 22, 2019, Davis transmitted two threats over the internet from Pompano Beach, Florida to Tupelo, Mississippi, to the American Family Association’s Facebook page.

The posts contained the following language: “i am coming to tupelo unexpected with a group of people and we are going to kill every single person who runs your group,” and “you are the most disgusting people in america. i have put together a group to have you pieces of [expletive] obliterated into dust. yes, i literally mean killing all of you. you people are nothing but disgusting, worn out, and old excuses of human life.”

The FBI investigated the case. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jeffrey F. Michelland.
