CONCORD, N.H. -- A Texas inmate has been charged with mailing death threats to New Hampshire Attorney General Kelly Ayotte, apparently because he wanted to serve prison time in New Hampshire.

Jimmy Dale Folsom Junior, 43, has been indicted on federal charges of sending two letters to Ayotte, threatening to kill her. Each count is punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine. A trial date hasn't been set.

Prosecutors say at the time Folsom allegedly made the threats while an inmate in Huntsville, Texas.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Bill Morse says Folsom had heard favorable things about being in prison in New Hampshire and wanted to serve time in the state.

But, Morse said, if convicted, Folsom would be sent to federal prison, and New Hampshire doesn't have one yet.
