TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man is in jail after making death threats against Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Jeb Bush.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Joshuah Enoch Mancinni on May 1 at his Miami Beach home.
An FDLE spokeswoman says the 53-year-old man was charged with one count of threats to kill or do bodily injury. He is being held in the Broward County jail on a $150,000 bond.
Mancinni was arrested after sending a letter to the Broward County Sheriff's Office that threatened Scott and Bush, as well as Attorney General Pam Bondi and other individuals.
FDLE did a handwriting analysis of the letter and determined it was written by Mancinni.
Mancinni is charged with a second-degree felony, which is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
