Colorado man to plead guilty in anthrax hoax

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A Colorado man has indicated he wants to plead guilty to mailing fake anthrax letters to the offices of three Alabama Congressmen in January.

Jay DeVaughn filed documents in federal court Friday saying he would plead guilty to the three counts of false information and hoaxes in Alabama.

The 41-year-old Denver man also said he wants his plea and sentencing handled by the federal court in Colorado.

He faces charges there for allegedly mailing threatening communications and mailing false information and hoaxes within Colorado.

DeVaughn, who has family in Alabama, is accused of mailing the threatening letters to the Birmingham offices of U.S. Senators Richard Shelby and Jeff Sessions, and to the Anniston office of U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers.

Each envelope contained white powder and a letter referring to the powder as deadly anthrax.
