FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A man accused of sending threatening letters to a federal judge and North Dakota state court officials has pleaded guilty.

Carlos Kidd is charged in federal court with mailing threatening communications. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

The 34-year-old Kidd pleaded guilty Tuesday to sending a threatening letter on Oct. 28, 2010, to U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland in North Dakota.

Authorities say the letter contained a threat to kill Hovland and demanded that $10,000 be deposited in Kidd’s inmate prison account.

The plea agreement calls for seven other counts to be dismissed.

Sentencing Is set for April 28.
