A Scot who spent two decades on death row has been jailed for three years after threatening a judge who prosecuted his original case.
Kenny Richey admitted retaliation and violating a protection order in January this year.
He has originally pleaded not guilty at Putnam County Common Pleas Court and was held without bail ahead of a trial scheduled to take place this month.
However, the 48-year-old who now stays in Toledo, Ohio, later admitted the charges.
Prosecutors said Richey had left threatening telephone messages for judge Randall Basinger, warning that he was "coming to get him".
Richey said in an earlier court appearance that he had been drinking heavily before he left the phone message and regretted making the call from his Mississippi home on New Year's Eve.
Richey returned to Edinburgh in January 2008 after 21 years in a US prison awaiting execution.
The former marine, who was born to a Scottish mother and American father, walked free in 2007 under a plea deal after a federal court overturned his death sentence.
He had been convicted of starting a fire that killed two year-old Cynthia Collins by arson in 1986.
