SCRANTON, Pa. (WHTM) – A state prison inmate will serve more prison time for mailing a threatening letter to a Lancaster County judge.
Joshua Keziah, 28, was sentenced Tuesday to serve 14 months in a federal prison. He also received two years of post-release supervision that requires him to spend 90 days in a halfway house.
Keziah threatened to kill President Judge Joseph Madenspacher in a letter mailed last year from the State Correctional Institution in Frackville to the Lancaster County Courthouse. He pleaded guilty in August.
Keziah, formerly of Brownstown, is serving prison time for a robbery in Manheim Township. Keziah and two others in February 2008 assaulted a 24-year-old man, drove him to an ATM, and forced him to hand over his bank card and PIN.
He was ordered to serve up to 7 years after pleading guilty in 2010 to robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and other charges.
