California man charged with threatening Fani Willis

(NBC, KYMA/KECY) – A California man has been charged with threatening Fulton County Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis.

Marc Shultz, 66, of Chula Vista, made his first court appearance Friday after being charged on April 24.

He was indicted by a federal grand jury in Atlanta on charges of threatening District Attorney Willis, according to an announcement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia.

Willis is leading the prosecution of former President Donald Trump and several of his associates. They have all been accused of trying to overturn the 2020 elections in Georgia.

According to court documents, Shultz repeatedly posted comments on livestream videos on YouTube that threatened Willis with violence.

Shultz will be arraigned in Atlanta in June.
