New York, NY — Theodore (Ted) Shulman, an abortion supporter from New York, pled guilty yesterday to making death threats against tow high-profile pro-life leaders. He could face up to 51 months in Federal custody. Sentencing is scheduled September 12.
Shulman reached an agreement that allowed him to plead guilty to making the death threats against Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life and Prof. Robert George of Princeton University. Shulman had posted the threatening comment to an online blog.
Shulman has also repeatedly threatened the lives of Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman and Cheryl Sullenger and other pro-life leaders across the country, including Jill Stanek.
Shulman has been held without bail since his arrest on February 24, 2011, after Federal agents raiding his apartment found cyanide and two other deadly substances in his possession. The plea agreement dropped charges related to the deadly substances in return for his guilty plea on the threats.
“We are thankful that Mr. Shulman will be locked up for some time where he cannot hurt anyone. We pray for him that he will find repentance and forgiveness through Jesus Christ,” said Newman.
