An Ada County woman is heading back to prison following her conviction of mailing threatening letters from the Idaho Women's Correctional Center in Pocatello.
Linda Lakes, 54, was released from the Pocatello lockup in September 2012 after serving time for a 2007 grand theft conviction. But in November 2012, Lakes pleaded guilty to sending six letters between November 2010 and July 2012, threatening to injure and/or kill a man from her past, thought to be her abuser. FBI agents discovered a drawing depicting a battered stick figure alongside the phrases "No Tears," "No Hiding" and "No More You."
"One stick figure appeared to be lying down with his face smashed," wrote FBI agent Kyle Wright in a court document obtained by the Associated Press. "The baseball bat was lying nearby with damage that appeared to be consistent with its use on the first stick figure. The second stick figure appeared to be walking away with a smile."
On Monday, Lakes was sentenced to a year in federal prison and three years of supervised release.
