TN prisoner accused of sending threats due in court

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - A Tennessee prisoner accused of sending threatening letters to Gov. Bill Haslam and others that falsely claimed the envelopes contained anthrax is scheduled to appear in a federal courtroom in Nashville Tuesday.

Federal prosecutors have said that Branden Frady was a prisoner at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution when he began sending the threatening letters in September 2012. Officials said he sent six letters in all, some of them going to Haslam, the secretary of state and the district attorney's office in Nashville. Four of the letters were said to have contained white power. Authorities said they also contained explicit death threats against public officials, such as, "I will kill you" and "Here is some anthrax."

Frady, who is 32 and from Johnson City, has pleaded not guilty.
