Inmate pleads guilty to Comanche Co. Courthouse hoax

Lawton_An inmate has pleaded guilty in a case in which he mailed white power to the District Attorney in Comanche County.

The U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma says 41-year-old Lloyd Alan Cooper pleaded guilty this week to conveying a false hoax threat to the Comanche County District Attorney's office.

Cooper mailed a letter to the courthouse back in November, containing a white powder and a note written in red pen saying, "God save us".

The courthouse was locked down for hours after the letter was opened.  The powder was actually a common pain reliever.

Cooper faces up to five years in federal prison and up to $250,000 in fines. He could also be required to pay restitution.

His sentencing hearing will be set in about 90 days.
