United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Texas man was indicted by a federal grand jury for Mailing Threatening Communications.

Carlos Kidd, age 33, was indicted in the United States District Court for the District of North Dakota on November 6, 2012, for mailing threatening letters to a federal judge in North Dakota. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen Klein in Bismarck, North Dakota on January 24, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine. The charge is merely an accusation and Kidd is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman is prosecuting the case. Kidd was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has not been set.
