Cesar Altieri Sayoc—the man authorities allege was behind the series of “suspicious packages” sent to prominent Democrats, a news outlet, and critics of President Donald Trump—was handed five federal charges in the wake of his arrest on Friday and faces up to 58 years in prison.
In the complaint put together by authorities, they allege Sayoc’s Twitter profile was among the things that led to his arrest.
According to the document, which was uploaded by the Associated Press, Sayoc’s Twitter feed had “misspellings consistent with the packages” including incorrectly spelling Hillary Clinton’s name and former DNC head Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s name.
The complaint also alleges that a post on the suspect’s Twitter account the day after the discovery of a package at George Soros’s home was “critical of, among others, President Barack Obama and George Soros.”
Sayoc is charged with sending 13 packages–some were deemed to contain “potential explosive devices”– that were addressed to Soros, Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, Eric Holder, actor Robert DeNiro, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), James Clapper, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and two packages each to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Authorities said a “latent fingerprint” was detected on one of the packages sent to Waters.
