Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- A Point Pleasant man who admitted threatening prospective jurors faces up to five years in prison.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 33-year-old Daniel Lee Hall pleaded guilty wednesday to mailing threatening letters in March 2009 to people on a list of prospective jurors for his trial on unspecified state charges.

Prosecutors say several people who received the letters refused to appear for jury duty.

Hall's trial in Mason County circuit court had to be rescheduled.

Hall is scheduled to be sentenced on the federal charges on Aug. 31.
