A Gold Coast woman was sentenced to a year of court supervision for sending an email to the White House threatening to “blow out the brains” of several people, including Rahm Emanuel, then President Barack Obama’s chief of staff.

Cook County Judge Neera Walsh sentenced Prabhjot Uppal after she pleaded guilty Monday to one count of misdemeanor harassment, defense attorney Stuart Goldberg said.

Uppal, now 40, had sent the email targeting nine people in 2010.

In addition to the current mayor, the threats involved Cook County Judge Larry Axelrood, attorneys and others involved in two court cases in which Uppal was charged with phone harassment of coworkers in 2007 and 2009, authorities said at the time.

Authorities had also said they didn’t believe there was a credible threat stemming from Uppal’s e-mail.

Axelrood, in 2009, sentenced Uppal to two years’ probation and recommended she undergo psychiatric evaluation.

Uppal was a former medical resident at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.

Her license to practice internal medicine expired in June 2006.
