IOWA FALLS, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa Falls man accused of threatening to cut the throats of judges in Eldora during a call to an office of the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., has been sentenced to 18 months in prison.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (https://bit.ly/1PvD6Yt ) reports that 35-year-old Andre Michael Lafontaine III was sentenced Friday. Lafontaine, who was found guilty of transmitting a threatening communication in October, has also been ordered to three years of supervised release following his prison sentence.

Prosecutors say Lafontaine left a threatening message in July laced with a racial epithet and obscenities on the voicemail of the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility. Authorities say he complained the FBI had not responded to his allegations of official corruption.
