As per court documents, he said:

“I’m going to shoot you in the head. I hope you die in a grave, you despicable tyrant”

Eugene Huelsman’s defense lawyer, Curtis Fallgatter, says that the threat was made because of the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, which happened three days before the voicemail was sent. Huelsman is said to have thought that Gaetz was a key factor in starting the riots.

Yesterday, the man who threatened to kill GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz in a voicemail was given a sentence.

On tape, he said, “I’m going to shoot you.”

Eugene Huelsman was sentenced to home detention and fined $10,000 for threatening the life of a U.S. congressman.

“Eugene Huelsman was just furious about the attack on the Capitol.”

Huelsman will have to stay at home for 6 months because he sent a threat, which is a crime. He will also be on probation for 5 years and have to pay a fine of $10,000.

Know about the man who was found guilty of threatening Matt Gaetz

According to Business Insider, Huelsman is a cameraman who has worked for NBC, ABC, and CNN. According to IMDB, he won one Prime Time Emmy and was nominated for nine others between 2004 and 2014.

A former CNN cameraman was given six months of house arrest, five years of parole, and a $10,000 fine for saying he would “put a bullet” in Rep. Matt Gaetz.

Eugene Huelsman, 59, from Thousand Oaks, California, pleaded guilty to sending a threat in interstate commerce.

Huelsman was nominated for his work on shows like Saturday Night Live and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. In 2014, he and 32 other people won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Technical Team at the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade.

Even though Huelsman was a successful cameraman for Hollywood and other news organizations, prosecutors say Matt Gaetz may not be the first politician Huelsman has threatened. The Justice Department said that Huelsman had once been looked into for making threats against the family of a US President who was not named.

The US Attorney for the Northern District of Florida, Jason Coody, said that Huelsman’s actions were wrong in response to the threat made against Matt Gaetz.

He said:

“Free speech is one of the most important parts of our democracy. But sending threats of physical violence, like the ones this person made before and for which he or she was investigated, is definitely against the law.

In an official statement, Huelsman’s lawyer, Curtis Fallgatter, said that the former cameraman has had trouble finding work since his arrest in 2021.

Fallgatter said that Huelsman’s anger problems were a big part of why he threatened Matt Gaetz.

“He admits that none of that was a good reason for him to call, and, as was already said, he deeply regrets making that call.”

He added:

“(Huelsman is) very embarassed.”

Fallgatter said that Huelsman plans to go to a program to help him deal with his anger while he is on probation.
