Defendant's sentence for sending threatening communications to a judge is affirmed where: 1) the district court reviewed defendant's mental health history and specifically addressed his disparity claim, providing sufficient reasoning to support imposition of the sentence; and 2) it was reasonable to conclude that defendant's threats would increase if he were not deterred by a Guidelines sentence.
