After 20 Years of Hate Mail to Black Men, Man Sentenced to 3 Years

October 5, 2015


A man who wrote hundreds of threatening letters over 20 years to black and mixed-race men — including Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and New York Yankee Derek Jeter — was sentenced Tuesday to three years and 10 months in prison.

David Tuason apologized in federal court, saying he sent the threatening letters because a black man “stole” the girlfriend he planned to marry.

Tuason, 46, pleaded guilty in May to six counts of mailing threatening communications and two counts of threatening interstate communications.
