Man Charged With Threatening Doctor Over Transgender Care
BOSTON (AP) — Federal prosecutors have charged a Texas man with threatening a Boston physician who cares for transgender children.
Thirty-eight-year-old Matthew Jordan Lindner of Comfort, Texas, faces a charge of transmitting interstate threats.
He was arrested Friday and is expected to appear in federal court in Massachusetts at a later date.
According to authorities, Lindner left a profane voicemail threatening the physician's life.
It was unclear Saturday if Lindner is represented by an attorney and a message left with him wasn't immediately returned.
Over the summer, doctors and other staffers at Boston Children’s Hospital also received violent threats related to its medical care for transgender youth.
