A Faribault woman pled guilty today in federal court in connection with mailing bomb threats to eight post offices in southern Minnesota.
Christina Anne Reineke pled guilty to one count of sending a threatening communication.
Reineke mailed threatening letters to post offices in Mankato, North Mankato, Lake Crystal, Madelia, New Ulm, Sleepy Eye, LeCenter and St. James on February 9, according to the plea agreement.
The letters indicated that the post offices would be bombed and postal workers and customers would be killed. The letters stated, "Everyone deserves to die. May all of you blow up in smoke."
Reineke recently served a 27-month prison sentence for making terroristic threats against State Rep. Jeanne Poppe, State Sen. Dan Sparks, and Austin Mayor Tom Stiehm.
She was released from Minnesota state prison in November 2008.
Law enforcement officials searched Reineke's residence in March, and found notebook paper that matched the paper used to write the letters. Officials also found a planner listing the addresses of the targeted post offices, and an envelope containing three newspaper articles about the threats.
Reineke could face up to 10 years in federal prison. A judge has not yet determined her sentence.
