West Virginia man sentenced for threatening witnesses and jury in synagogue shooting trial

Charleston, WV (WOAY) – A federal court has sentenced a West Virginia man to more than six years in prison for making threats to jurors and witnesses during the trial of Pittsburgh synagogue shooter Robert Bowers. 

Hardy Carroll Lloyd of Follansbee described himself as a reverend of the white supremacy movement, according to government officials. 

Authorities arrested Lloyd in August for making threatening social media posts and e-mailing the jurors and witnesses in Bowers’ trial. 

He pleaded guilty to charges of obstruction of justice in September.
