A man has now appeared in court after threatening J.K. Rowling, or in other words, Harry Potter's 'mother'.

According to the Scottish Daily Express, a 31-year-old man named Glenn Mullen uploaded audio clips in which he threatened to kill Ms. Rowling.

The man, who currently lives in Manchester in Great Britain, had uploaded audio clips in Gaelic, where he uttered several threatening words.

He was quoted as saying things such as he would kill J.K. Rowling with a big hammer in one of the audio clips.

Solved in 2023

The crime was solved already in January 2023.

He was found by an online magazine shortly after he posted the clips on Twitter.

He was charged with sending threatening messages.

J.K. Rowling's statements were read aloud in court, and they revealed that Ms. Rowling believed the threats appeared calculated and made her look over her shoulder.

Sentencing was low

The judge sentenced Glenn Mullen to two eight-week prison sentences.

Besides that, he was suspended for two years.

The two sentences were to be served concurrently.

Mullen was also ordered to complete a 12-month community order.

This would include both 20 days of rehabilitation activity requirement and 150 hours of unpaid work.
