Memphis Man Not Guilty Of Threatening To Kill President Obama

Posted on: 11:07 am, December 12, 2013, by , updated on: 06:25pm, December 12, 2013

(Memphis) A Memphis man has been found not guilty of threatening to kill President Obama.

Darrin Young was indicted earlier this year after the Secret Service says he was recorded during a phone call threatening to kill the president.

In federal court Monday, Young said he was “claiming his Moorish authority” and that he was “not represented by anyone” on what he called “trumped up charges.”

Young had to be taken out of court during his own trail after several disruptions.

The threats were recorded during a phone call between Young and self-proclaimed sovereign citizen Tabitha Gentry.

Gentry was behind bars at the time, and still is, for squatting in a multimillion dollar East Memphis home.

Despite Young saying he didn’t want representation, his attorneys said Monday that they believe he is innocent.
