TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

A north Florida man is facing up to ten years of prison after he was convicted of sending threatening letters, including one where he said he would blow up a federal courthouse.

The U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida says Jamie Lee Wambles was convicted on four counts Tuesday.

Wambles is from Sneads. He's accused of sending letters last December to the federal courthouse in Tallahassee, including one that he claimed had anthrax in it. He also sent a letter threatening to blow up the courthouse.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Wambles was upset because his pit bull had been shot and killed when he was arrested on other charges last year. Wambles wanted the officers arrested.
