Additional Charges Filed Against Shawn Christy

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced Wednesday that a federal grand jury returned a superseding indictment on Tuesday adding seven additional charges against Shawn Christy, age 27, of McAdoo, who was previously indicted for threatening to harm President Trump and others.
According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, the superseding indictment charges Christy with interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, two counts of interstate transportation of a stolen firearm, two counts of interstate transportation of a firearm while under a felony information, one count of unlawful possession of a firearm as a convicted felon, and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm as a fugitive.

The superseding indictment also contains the four threat offenses that were charged in the original indictment, including the threat against President Trump.

The superseding indictment alleges that Christy committed the new offenses between July 25, 2018 and August 20, 2018.

The threat to President Trump is being investigated by United States Secret Service, and the other charges are being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Butler Township Police. Assistant U.S. Attorney Francis P. Sempa is prosecuting the case.
