Tennessee man sentenced to prison in Ill. threat case

JONESBORO, Ill. (AP) -- A Tennessee man has been ordered to spend four years in an Illinois prison for threatening a worker with the state social services agency.

WSIL-TV reports that a judge sentenced 30-year-old Brandon McCaslin of Dyersburg, Tenn., in connection with a felony intimidation charge in Union County.

State's Attorney Tyler Edmonds says the former resident of Alto Pass called the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services in January and made threats regarding a pending DCFS case.

An investigation by Anna and Union County authorities resulted in McCaslin's arrest.
