Logan County Man Pleads Guilty to Mailing Threatening Letters

A man from Logan County pleaded guilty Tuesday to mailing threatening letters to public officials in Logan County, according to information from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin's office.

Kelly Gerald Crosby, 32, pleaded guilty in federal court in Charleston to mailing threatening communications. 

On Sept. 8, 2014, Crosby was incarcerated at the Southwestern Regional Jail on a state charge related to using minors to film sexually explicit conduct. 

While in custody, Crosby mailed a letter delivered to the Logan County Courthouse, in which Crosby made threats to workers, public officials and others in the Logan County area.  The letter included threats to “kill, rape and make suffer” the individuals he identified in the letter.

Crosby faces up to five years in federal prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 19, 2015.
