Internet Radio Host Harold C. Turner Guilty of Threatening Judges

Harold C. Turner, the incendiary Internet radio host, was found guilty on Friday afternoon of threatening to assault or kill three federal judges in Chicago because he was angered by an opinion they had issued supporting a local handgun ban.

After two previous trials ended in a mistrial, a jury in federal court in Brooklyn deliberated less than two hours before rendering its decision. Mr. Turner, 48, of North Bergen, N.J., faces up to 10 years in prison.

Prosecutors portrayed Mr. Turner as a dangerous white supremacist.
