Ken Richey, from Scotland, faces up to three years in prison when he's sentenced for threatening a judge in the Ohio village of Ottawa who prosecuted his original case.
Richey pleaded guilty to a felony retaliation charge last month. He says he'd been drinking heavily before he left a threatening phone message and regrets calling from his Mississippi home on New Year's Eve.
