|Conn. Inmate Accused of Anthrax Threat|
|By Associated Press|
An inmate at the Cheshire Correctional Facility was indicted September 11 on charges that he sent the Bridgeport state's attorney's office a powdery white substance alleged to be anthrax.
Noel Davila, 32, sent the letter on Aug. 18, U.S. Attorney John A. Danaher III said. Authorities closed the prosecutor's office for two days after receiving the letter, Danaher said.
The substance was not anthrax.
A grand jury indicted Davila on charges of threatening the use of a weapon of mass destruction and delivering a threat through the U.S. mail. If convicted of both charges, he would face a possible sentence of life in prison.
