Man Who Threatened to Kill Sen. Cruz Under House Arrest

by Elizabeth Ruiz

A Universal City man is on his way to house arrest after threatening to kill a U.S. Senator.

Army veteran James Headley admitted he left a threatening voice mail last summer for Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and his family because he disagreed with his policies.

He’s been serving time since last July, so when U.S. District Judge Xavier Rodriguez
sentenced him to six months in federal prison and six months of house arrest Tuesday, Headley got credit for time served. Judge Rodriguez also ordered the 59-year-old to turn in his driver’s license.
