Lansing man gets prison term for threats

DES MOINES, Iowa (WXOW) - A Lansing man has been sentenced in federal court to more than 2 ½ years in prison for making threatening telephone calls and sending harassing emails to judges, law enforcement officers, and court employees.

The federal prosecutor's office in Cedar Rapids says 27-year-old Kenneth Haag was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to using a telephone to threaten injury to another person.

Judge Linda Reade at Haag's sentencing hearing noted Haag had sent hundreds of communications about what he perceived as wrongful criminal convictions in 2004, when he pleaded guilty in Allamakee County to criminal trespass and assault on a peace officer.

Judges, law enforcement officers, and the victim were targets of the threats made by Haag.

As part of his sentence, Haag also must complete a substance abuse testing and treatment program.
