NASHVILLE, Tenn. (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 say Branden Frady was a prisoner at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution when he began sending the threatening letters in September of 2012. Officials say he sent six letters in all, some of them going to Haslam, the secretary of state and the district attorney's office in Nashville.
