CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A Lansing man accused of threatening to kill an Allamakee County sheriff's deputy has pleaded guilty to a federal charge in the case.
Kenneth Haag was convicted Tuesday in Cedar Rapids' federal court of using a telephone to transmit an interstate communication threatening to injure another person.
Prosecutors say that between November 2011 and January 2012, Haag made numerous calls and sent emails and faxes threatening to injure or kill various county officials. In a plea agreement, he pleaded guilty to one instance of calling and threatening to kill a sheriff's deputy.
Haag, who remains in federal custody, faces up to five years in prison when he's sentenced at a later date.
