Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, the man accused of trying to kill President Barack Obama by firing up to a dozen shots at the White House in November, has been indicted for attempted assassination of the President.
Ortega-Hernandez was arrested days after the Nov. 11th shooting and was formally charged Tuesday by a grand jury in Washington.
A five-page document charges Ortega-Hernandez with 17 counts, including assault with a dangerous weapon, using a weapon during a crime of violence and doing damage to the White House of more than $1,000.
Ortega-Hernandez is from Idaho Falls, Idaho. A lawyer for Ortega-Hernandez said his client would be entering not guilty pleas to all the charges.
