Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of investigation have charged a Tennessee inmate with three counts of Committing an Act of Terrorism for sending threatening letters.

TBI agents found that Jason Lee Fisher had sent a threatening letter to a relative of a Marshall County Sheriff’s department employee. That relative was a student at a school in Marshall County, and the letter was caught by school administrators.

Agents were alerted to the letter addressed to the student on Nov. 26, 2013. The investigation led them back to Fisher.

During the investigation two other letters surfaced, both traced back to Fisher, threatening further violence on the same dates Fisher was set to be in court in Marshall County.

The Wayne County Grand Jury returned indictments on Fisher on Oct. 30, 2015. They charged him with three counts of Committing an Act of Terrorism.

Thursday, he was served a capias charging him, and subsequently released back into the custody of the Tennessee Department of Correction.
