Rhode Island Man Convicted Of Threatening To Kill IRS Agent, Child & Rape His Wife

Listen, my parents had big problems with the IRS back in the 80's when they made filing errors and were harassed for months by the IRS, so I understand the anger people can feel toward that agency, but under no circumstances can you threaten to murder and rape those people when you get angry. That's a crime and a Rhode Island man is going down for doing just that.

Iowa Newaday:

A former accountant has been convicted of threatening to kill an IRS agent and rape and kill the agent's wife over a $330,000 tax bill.

Andrew A Calcione of Cranston Rhode Island was found guilty on charges of threatening to assault and murder an IRS agent and his family in federal court on Friday, and now faces up to 20 years in prison.

The 49-year-old was arrested for leaving two disturbing voicemails on his IRS agent's work phone, after receiving the news that he owed thousands in taxes.

In April 2013, Calcione and his ex-wife Patricia were asked to sign a form allowing extra time to assess their case. Calcione signed the document, but his wife did not, spurring the agent to leave a voicemail on Calcione's cell phone asking about the form the following July.

Three days later, an infuriated Calcione left a threatening voicemail on his agent's work phone and a transcript of part of the message was revealed in court papers.

'The next time you think you want to f****** call me up … don’t. ‘Cause the next time you do, I’m not going to answer. I’m just going to show up where you live,' Calcione says.

He goes on to threaten the agent's life and that of his family.

'Matter of fact, I’d shoot you in the f****** knee caps, tie you to a f****** chair, gag ya … and then f*** your wife in front of ya, and then blow her f****** brains out in front of ya and maybe kill your f****** kid...'

'So you can deal with that. Do not f****** call me again. I don’t bother you. Don’t f****** bother me.'

The second voicemail was Calcione telling the agent to ignore the prior message.

'Disregard my previous voicemail. I was f****** around with my daughter,' the message said, according to the agent.

After receiving the threatening calls, the agent reported Calcione to the police.

In the course of their investigation, Calcione changed his story three times and first said the message was intended for his ex-wife.

He then told authorities he meant to call his daughter, and changed his story a final time to say he was talking to himself in the car and must have accidentally rung the agent with his hands-free calling system.

I wonder if Andrew Calcione had just finished watching a "Sopranos" marathon before leaving the threatening voice mails?
