POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — A woman has been sentenced to a year in prison for mailing threatening letters while she was an inmate at the Pocatello Women’s Correctional Center. The Idaho State Journal reports  54-year-old Linda Joyce Jakes pleaded guilty in November to writing six of the letters 2010 to 2012.

Federal prosecutors say the letters contained threats to injure and kill a man from her past. The newspaper reports Jakes continued to send the letters even after being told to stop, and that she told FBI officials that she wanted to kill the man in question. Jakes was sentenced Monday. The man’s relationship to her was not immediately clear.
