LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 54-year-old Marine veteran pleaded guilty to misdemeanor conspiracy and was sentenced to two years' probation for sending threatening letters to Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and an administrator handling his worker compensation claim.

Prosecutor Bernie Zadrowski says a judge also ordered Alfred Blackwell on Monday to undergo a mental health evaluation and stay away from Goodman.

Blackwell was arrested Oct. 9 after sending profanity-laced letters to the mayor and state hearing appeals officer Georganne Bradley warning that he would go on a rampage Oct. 21.

Zadrowski noted that Bradley and Goodman both want Blackwell to get help that he needs.

Deputy Public Defender Conor Slife told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Blackwell lost his job and lives in constant pain since being injured while working as a roofer.
