A New York woman faces up to 10 years in jail for sending U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and several others threatening letters in the mail, according to the Boston divison of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Roberta Cicora, 57, St. Johnsville, N.Y., pleaded guilty in court on Friday to mailing threatening communications to Sen. Brown and Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley that included an unknown white powder.
Cicora also sent a threatening letter to the Franklin County House of Correction in Greenfield, N.Y. Cicora’s white powder letters caused the offices that received them to close down until HAZMAT teams responded and determined that the letters did not pose a lethal threat to the safety of the workers there.
Cicora will be sentenced in court on Jan. 10, 2013. She faces up to 10 years in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.
