EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A Missouri man faces up to 15 years in federal prison after being convicted of sending threatening letters while he was a prison inmate.

Fifty-six-year-old William Mabie of Festus was found guilty in East St. Louis, Illinois, of three counts of mailing threatening communications.

Authorities say Mabie sent the questionable letters in 2012 while he was imprisoned in Florence, Colorado, and Lompoc, California, on earlier convictions related to threats he also had made. Two of the mailings in the latest case were sent to recipients in Illinois’ Bond County.

Mabie’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for April 3.
