A Brickeys man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for sending a series of threatening letters to several federal employees, including a judge, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Arkansas said in a news release Friday.
Leroy Selsor, 36, was sentenced Friday morning in federal court in Little Rock. Selsor will not be eligible for parole and will be under supervised release for three years after he leaves prison.
Selsor began making threats Nov. 1, 2011, sending a letter to a district judge and an assistant U.S. attorney containing threatening speech, according to the release. In the letters, Selsor wrote that he intended to injure both individuals by putting a bomb in their vehicles, the release states.
Three days later, Selsor mailed letters to the same judge and attorney and also sent one to a federal probation officer. All three contained a white, powdery substance, which Selsor claimed was a virus. Selsor also sent a letter to the Social Security Administration on Jan. 10, 2012, with the same substance in it.
Selsor was indicted Aug. 7, 2012, and on April 5 pleaded guilty to one count of mailing threatening communications and one count of false information and hoaxes.
