A man who left threatening messages on Sen. Patty Murray's voicemail has been sentenced in federal court in Seattle to a year and a day in prison.
KOMO News reports Charles Alan Wilson of Selah received prison time even though officials didn't believe the 64-year-old would harm the senator. He could have received up to 10 years in prison.
Wilson pleaded guilty in June to a charge of threatening a federal official.
He was arrested in April after leaving angry voicemail messages about health care legislation.
