Lansing man pleads guilty to threatening to kill sheriff's deputy


A Lansing man has pleaded guilty in federal court to threatening to kill an Allamakee County Sheriff's deputy.

Kenneth Haag, 26, pleaded guilty on Friday in federal court in Cedar Rapids to one count of using a telephone to transmit an interstate communication threatening to injure another person.

According to court documents, Haag admitted that he called the Allamakee County Sheriff's Office on November 9, 2011, and threatened to kill a deputy.

Information filed in court shows that between November 2011 and January 2012, Haag initiated numerous communications via fax, email or phone to the sheriff's office, the Allamakee County Clerk of Court Office and State of Iowa judges in Allamakee County.

Court officials say Haag threatened to injure or kill county official or judges.

A sentencing date hasn't been set, but Haag faces a maximum sentence of up to five years in prison, a $250,000 fine, a $100 special assessment, and up to three years of supervised release.
