Man given 5 years prison for hanging around Obama's house while armed

A man convicted of loitering outside US President Barack Obama's Chicago home in September while armed has been slapped with a five-year prison sentence. Omhari Sengstacke, 31, was convicted last month of two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He was arrested in September after repeatedly trying to pass security barriers near Obama's home, saying he wanted to talk to Obama about a job. Police found a handgun and a bulletproof vest in Sengstacke's car but said he hadn't threatened Obama. Obama was running for president at the time of the arrest.
