DALLAS — A judge on Monday sentenced a Dallas man to more than two years in federal prison for threatening President Barack Obama.

A statement from the US Attorney's Office in Dallas said Brian Dean Miller got a 27-month sentence without parole.

He could have received a prison sentence of up to five years in federal prison for pleading guilty to posting a threat to kill the president on the Craigslist website in March 2010. He posted the message "Obama must die" the night Congress passed a health care overhaul bill.

The posting said Miller was following through on a vow to become a terrorist if the bill passed. Authorities were able to track Miller through his e-mail address.
