Collins man free after threatening FBI agents online

COLLINS, MS (WDAM) - A 43-year-old Collins man is free after being sentenced to time already served on charges he threatened FBI agents.

Brett Rogers pleaded guilty in December to federal charges after posting on an FBI website that he "was going to the little FBI Office in Hattiesburg and start putting some bullets through the heads of people."

In an unusual twist, Rogers asked Judge Keith Starrett in open court to sentence him to the maximum - 21 months in prison.

Starrett sentenced him to time already served plus supervised probation as well as anger management treatment.
