LAKE CHARLES- U.S. District Court Judge Patricia Minaldi has sentenced a federal prison inmate to five years for writing a threatening letter to President Barack Obama.

Federal court documents say Carlton Neil Norah was incarcerated at the Oakdale Correctional Complex when he wrote the letter.

Norah's defense attorney asked the court Thursday to consider the "bizarre" nature of the letter.

She said Norah is mentally ill and wrote the letter knowing he would not be able to act on any of the threats since he was incarcerated.

Norah apologized to the court for his actions.
