DALLAS (AP) - A Texas prison system inmate has been charged with sending threatening letters to law officers prosecuting alleged members of a white supremacist gang.

Authorities say the hoax letters drew resources away from investigations such as the recent slaying of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, plus the Jan. 31 killing of assistant DA Mark Hasse.

A federal grand jury in Dallas on Wednesday indicted Jesse Brister of Conroe on two counts of mailing threatening letters to law enforcement. Brister remains in the Telford Unit serving time for fraud.

Brister in late March allegedly mailed letters to the U.S. attorney’s office in Dallas threatening retaliation for prosecution of Aryan Brotherhood members. The gang was targeted by a task force that included the Kaufman County district attorney’s office.
