A Springfield man is awaiting sentencing for assaulting a federal agent and a Clark County Sheriff's deputy. 

Federal prosecutors say 20-year-old Ronald Skelton II punched a Secret Service agent and deputy who went to his home in 2015 to investigate Twitter posts that threatened former President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush and the families of police officers. Sentencing is scheduled for June 9.
