Man who mailed pipe bombs to prominent Democrats, CNN sentenced to 20 years in prison

Posted: Updated:

(WSIL) -- The Florida man who mailed more than a dozen pipe bombs to prominent Democrats and CNN, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Earlier this year, Cesar  Sayoc, 57, pleaded guilty in a federal court in Manhattan to four sets of charges -- 65 counts total -- for sending 16 packages containing explosive material and glass shards to liberal politicians and others who support liberal policies. Those included Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Robert De Niro, 2020 presidential candidates Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Joe Biden.

Sayoc attached a picture of the intended victim marked with a red "X" outside each explosive device.

ABC News and CNN contributed to this report.
