COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A man already serving a 17-year prison term is in trouble again, now accused of sending a fake anthrax letter to a Franklin County judge.
Sean Andrew Heisa, 31 is charged with one count of unlawful possession or use of a hoax weapon of mass destruction, intimidation and retaliation.
The piece of mail was sent to Judge Kim Brown on June 23, 2015, according to Franklin County prosecutor Ron O’Brien.
O’Brien said the letter contained a handwritten threatening letter, which included a death threat as well as a packet full of powder labeled ‘Anthrax.”
The powder was tested and found to be harmless.
Heisa is an inmate at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, serving a 17-year sentence for aggravated robbery. Judge Brown presided over a previous case where Heisa was the defendant.
If convicted of all charges, Heisa faces more than seven additional years in prison.
