TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) — A Tennessee man who sent an envelope with white powder to a Tippecanoe County judge is sentenced on Friday.

Daniel Porter pleaded guilty to sending Judge Don Daniel an envelope filled with powdered milk in October. Friday, Porter was sentenced to two years in prison and 3 years supervised probation.

According to court documents, Porter said he hoped his letter would scare the judge because it looked like anthrax or another toxic powder.

For a charge of sending a threatening letter, Porter faced up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
