U.S. Attorney Bridget M. Brennan has announced that Bryan Shane Wolfe, 45, of Mansfield was sentenced on Thursday by Judge Donald C. Nugent to 46 months in prison after he pleaded guilty in August of 2021 to sending threatening communications to three individuals and possession of a firearm after having been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. 

“This defendant deliberately chose to send threats to his victims due to their race, religion and ethnicity,” said First Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle M. Baeppler. “These actions were targeted, occurred on more than one occasion and caused lasting harm.  Today’s sentence illustrates that threats made online have real consequences and may result in real prison time.”
