MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Nashville man faces up to five years in prison after he pleaded guilty to mailing a threatening communication to his former employer.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for West Tennessee said Monday that 58-year-old Daniel Puckett had been employed as a temporary worker at Unilever Corp. in Covington.

Prosecutors say that after he was fired, Puckett sent a threatening communication written across the front of a Ku Klux Klan publication called “The Torch” to his former supervisor at Unilever.

Puckett is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 9 in Memphis.
