DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Lansing man has been sentenced to more than 2 1/2 years in prison for making threatening telephone calls and sending harassing emails to judges, law enforcement officers, and court employees.
The federal prosecutor's office in Cedar Rapids says 27-year-old Kenneth Haag was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to using a telephone to threaten injury to another person.
Judge Linda Reade at Haag's sentencing hearing noted Haag had sent hundreds of communications about what he perceived as wrongful criminal convictions in 2004, when he pleaded guilty to criminal trespass and assault on a peace officer.
Many of the threats were directed at judges, law enforcement officers and the victim involved in the 2004 case in Allamakee County.
Haag also must complete a substance abuse testing and treatment program.
