DURANGO, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado man accused of threatening to
kill President Barack Obama and blow up a suburban Minneapolis mall
has pleaded not guilty.
Twenty-year-old Timothy Gutierrez of Cortez appeared in federal
court in Durango on Tuesday for arraignment and a detention
hearing. He was ordered detained without bond.
Gutierrez is charged with sending threatening e-mails to the FBI
in Washington, D.C.
Prosecutors say the first e-mail threatened Obama, and the
second said explosives would be used to damage or destroy property
at the Mall of America.
Gutierrez has said the threats were a prank. He turned himself
in Jan. 29 at the FBI's office in Durango.
